As Nico has already mentioned, the svn+ssh access mode can be found
the Red Bean book, "Tunneling over SSH", and specifics may be found


The basic idea is that you multiplex all access to the repository
through one account, with a special keypair for each user.

In the 'svnuser' account's ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file, a user's
public key is used to adjust svnserve's --tunnel-user option, to sign
each change with the correct ID.
