It's actually sshing over to the server and running svnserve -t there,
not sshing to the server and running svn directly. svnserve -t is the
process that talks to the repository on the remote box, not svn. The
-t tells svnserve to run in tunnel mode, which means that instead of
listening for incoming connections it uses standard input and output as
it's connection to the client.
