If I'm a read-only client, I don't set up any ssh-tunnel variable in
my ~/.subversion/servers file. Then I access the repository via
svn://. If I'm a committer, then I *do* set up an ssh-tunnel variable
in my servers file, and still access the repository via svn://.

So no, at the moment, there is no way for the same person to use
ra_svn and *only* be asked for authentication at commit-time. I'm not
sure if there are plans to change this. Ghudson can talk more to
