Protocol proxy?

G'day everyone,
I was just wondering whether anyone knows of, or has implemented a
"protocol proxy" for Subversion?

What I'm envisaging is an equivalent of the SVN Apache plugin that
instead of operating on a local repository, would proxy all requests
on to a repository that is located elsewhere and is served by either
the svn://, http:// or https:// protocols.

The use case is that we have an existing Subversion repository housed
on a server inside the firewall that we wish to make accessible
outside the firewall. However for a variety of reasons we are unable
to expose the server directly - instead I was hoping to configure some
kind of proxy outside the firewall that would forward all requests
to the internal server.

In this specific instance the internal server is accessible via the
svn:// protocol and we'd like to configure the external proxy to use
https://, but I'm thinking that other combinations would also be

Is such a thing possible? If so, does anyone know where I might find
such a beast?
