More robust handling of shaky network connections?

Trying to use Subversion at a fairly large project, we repeatedly run into
some networking issues, causing SVN to bail out with error messages such
as: "Could not read response body: An existing connection was forcibly
closed by the remote host." and "Could not create SSL connection through
proxy server". We suspect it might be our corporate proxy server
infrastructure that might be causing this but we have yet to track down
the precise cause.

In any case, it raises an interesting issue: Apparently, Subversion does
not try to re-connect a busted network connection and I'm wondering why
that is? Being a networked application that often needs an open
connection for a prolonged amount of time (e.g. we've seen commits that
take over two hours), it might be wise to provide some sort of graceful
degradation (e.g. trying once or twice to restore a broken connection
before bailing out). Any arguments in favour or against this?
