Is the ssh slow because of inherent overhead, or because you're
experiencing an issue with ridiculous SSH session setup times? (e.g.
does ssh'ing to another host from Terminal take far longer than it
should to get the connection working?)

If it's the latter, check out <http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?
story=20050503190955329&query=ssh%2BIPv6>; in some cases, attempts to
do IPv6 lookups are the reason for the slow connection startup.
Macintouch also had some other articles on that.

You don't have to--it will run fine served by HTTP--but HTTPS is a
Very Good Idea, as it semi-transparently encrypts everything going
over the wire, including passwords. When I set it up under debian,
it was a lot easier than I expected; it shouldn't be much harder
under OS X, as you're dealing with the same components (apache2,
trac, and subversion). Googling for related terms should turn up
some decent instructions.
