It's just a SSL layer to svnserve, not a new deamon.

After a little hacking in main.py and autoprop_tests.py, all the test are
passing. The hack is just to set the config-dir to a specified directory.
Just before running "make check", I use "svn ls svn://localhost" to
permanently accept the certificate.

I wrote to shell scripts to facilitate testing. One that automatically
genererates a self-signed certificate used by svnserve before starting the
test. And another one that uses the "svn ls" hack before "make check".

This is a hack that should disappear, of course.

I was planning to send a patch tonight for comments.
