Of course any authentication you do on the connection would still
be useful.

However, look at how the subversion repo is set up: world readable,
writable only on authentication.

I might want an in-house repo to be set up the same way, except that
world would be defined as "within the corporate network". This
would mean that anyone with access to the local endpoint of the tunnel
would have that readonly capability.

If we encourage people to use this ssh-port-forwarding approach we
should also encourage them to disable unauthenticated reads.
