One reason to use SSH - the ability to port-forward from the firewall to
the SSH server on the SVN box. Allowing you to get access to the SVN
repository from outside without dealing with VPNs. If you never do
development work while on the road (i.e. no laptop users), then it may
not matter.

(SSH authentication is pretty simple if you're already running a Linux
server. I'll admit that I'm also a bit gung-ho about using SSH as
opposed to the other methods.)
