I checked what is "received" on port 443, by redirecting to port 8888
instead and using netcat, and this is what i got:

svn list ->

mainserver: nc -l 8888
<Some binary stuff>


svn list https://mainserver/path ->

mainserver: nc -l 8888
CONNECT bla:443 HTTP/1.1
Host: bla
User-Agent: SVN/1.4.4 (r25188) neon/0.26.4
Connection: TE
TE: trailers

I've searched that documentation, mail lists as well as googled, but I
can not find the answer to how this should be done.
