TUNNELing HTTP proxy (feature request / bug)

Hi

I am behind a network which uses a HTTP proxy for all outgoing traffic. This
is not a problem for client-initated protocols, of which subversion is one.

The svn client does not support the sending of svn:// requests via this
proxy, instead, it only works with HTTP requests.

It is entirely possible to support svn requests simply be requesting a
connection (using the CONNECT method which my proxy, as I believe do most,
happens to support) via the proxy to the origin server (at present it gives
up saying hostname not found - the hostname does exist).

RFC2817 (http://www.apps.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2817.html) describes this.

This fix should not take long and would enable be to become active on
projects only hosted by svn:// protocol. Thanks very much,

Adam
