svn+ssh mode does not require svnserve to be running in daemon mode.
Instead, you can use the "command=" feature of SSH public keys to run it
in tunnel mode (the "-t" parameter). Using the "-r" parameter also
works well to shorten the URL. You'll need to edit the
~/.ssh/authorized_key files on your server to setup the command parameter.

(I create a special-purpose SSH key pair, just for use with SVN. Which
is necessary if you're doing "command=" tricks. Along with PuTTY's
Pageant it makes svn+ssh pretty seamless on Windows clients. )

You may also want to take a look at:

Or my super-abbreviated guide where I list the commands for setting up
SSH keys and repositories. It's written for use with FSVS, but since
FSVS uses SVN repositories for its storage, it still applies.
