You're absolutely right, I didn't think of svn (or svn over ssh).

I haven't used 'svnserve' much because it does not integrate with our
Kerberos/LDAP/Windows-based authentication systems.
But my guess would be that it does not have the notion of a directory
tree, like the http or direct filesystem access methods have?

The second idea (start of thread, quoted below) in this case becomes
somewhat impossible to implement as a general solution, since 'svn://'
doesn't lend itself to it.

The first idea is still applicable as a general solution though

Only, I'm not sure if it really falls under the listing/'svn ls'
command anymore.
Maybe it's more of something that should be "svn find" or "svn probe"
or "svn enum" or whatever thing.
