RE: RE: http vs file

I'd vote against using svn+ssh without reason. I have setup this in our
environment here and can say that it is *a lot* slower than plain svn
(this is due to architectural reasons: each svn command is tunneled
through SSH and causes an svnservice command to be executed).
Yes, you no longer need the svnserve service. But instead of this you
need an SSH implementation for your OS which, for Windows, in most
cases also means a new service to be maintained, so you are back to
square one in your struggle with the admins.

On Linux/Un*x the scenario is different because many distros ship with an
SSH server daemon preconfigured, so you don't have to introduce a new
daemon.
