*YES* - I'd also love to be able to configure _at least_ the umask and
-r parameter for svnserve *server-side*, but alas, we svn+ssh:// people
are in a minority, I think....

I'm sure a patch would be very welcome! :-D


Client side configuration of what svnserve executable to run on the
server can be configured using .bashrc like I described, or this hack:

You can set the clientside environment variable: SVN_SSH to be the ssh
executable. And so this (also) works for me:

client:~$ export SVN_SSH=`pwd`/pseudossh
client:~$ cat `pwd`/pseudossh

# For testing to help you figure out what
# svn actually calls ssh with:
echo "$@" > ~/svnserve.args.txt
ssh $server /server/path/to/svnserve -t

.bashrc is the way to go, brother!
