This proposal is to implement proxy support for the svn:// RA protocol.
  I don't mean for it to implement HTTP proxy support, or to add
anything to the DAV RA methods, as that would make no sense in the scope
of my proposal. The feature I'm proposing for svnproxy and the svn://
RA method could be implemented for the HTTP methods by adding a support
for redirects, and/or setting up a proxy which supports DAV directives
to relay the DAV chat, which can probably be done with a properly set up
Apache. That however is a job for someone who groks mod_dav_svn, not a
lowly peon in things DAV such as I.

Again, I am NOT proposing to address the issue of "let's get svn to push
HTTP/WebDAV/DeltaV through an unsuspecting GET-only HTTP proxy that is
blocking my access to a repository on the internet!"

Sorry, I should have noted this in assumptions. By "proxy" I don't mean
"allow the svn to break through HTTP proxies". I have no idea how you
push a stateful protocol on a non-web port through a stateless web
proxy. My proposal is for a different set of problems.
