It is true that it allows you to get around firewall problems. But it
doesn't make the setup any simpler and the authentication is redundant -
authenticating via ssh (presumably a public key) for the port forwarding
and then authenticating to the svn server via PLAIN or a TLS certificate
or whatever.
