I'm assuming that the subversion users cc was a mistake. However, since
I'm feeling rather stupid concerning my own subversion problems I
suppose I should be charitable here :)

Just follow the Netscape instructions. 'Nothing' is supposed to happen,
or rather it all happens under the hood (this is mentioned in the docs
somewhere). To see that the cert has already been imported into Firefox
just look at tools/options/advanced/security/view_certificates. To use
it in tbird you have to export it from ff to pkcs12 then import.
Annoying, but it's not exactly difficult.
