Konqueror webdavs:// patch for SVN Book

Hi all,

Not sure if I submit this here or in dev. Since the content itself may
be of interest to users reading this list I'm posting my diff here.

Please find below my contribution to the SVN Book (against current
trunk) concerning the need to use webdavs:// for https repositories when
using KDE Konqueror. The book currently only mentions webdav://. I
changed the repository URLs mentioned (a) to conform with HACKING (see
"Subversion Guide: Primary server machine/URL: svn.red-bean.com", (b) to
ensure that the quoted error message from KDE Konqueror doesn't say
"host host" but instead something more readable, e.g. "host
svn.red-bean.com" and (c) because svn.red-bean.com *does* support both
webdav:// and webdavs:// access.
