svn_config_read could take a filename parameter. ("servers" or
"config", currently.)

Okay. But I feel like the information currently there isn't tagged very
well. There's nothing in "servers -> <groupname> -> host" to suggest
"the proxy host for HTTP connections", and similarly for
port/username/password/timeout.

For now, I will call my variable "svn_tunnel_agent" and leave what's
there alone. (I'd call it "svn-tunnel-agent", but an underscore-happy
person seems to have already set the standard for those files.)
