I do this as well. The one "Gotcha" that I have thought of is that the
URL for svn:externals may not be correct.

What I have done is edit my hosts file so that the true name of the
machine hosting the repository is redirected to 127.0.0.1, that way
(I'm hoping) the proper URL can be used for the repository and
svn:externals and everything will work out. I have not yet used
svn:externals to test this - but I will be soon.

I use the SSH tunnel only when working from home, at work on the LAN I
have direct access to the machine hosting the repository. With the
hosts file configured the URLs to the repository are the same
regardless of where I am working so I hope that makes use of the
svn:externals property possible.
