Does that actually work with svn clients? Some time ago I tried to
do a reverse-proxy in apache to a repository hosted on a different
server and it worked when the target path was the same on the remote
as what the client requested but when the path was different and
mapped in the proxy, somehow the 'real' path leaked back to the client
and kept it from working for some operations. Maybe in this case if
they learn the real path it just works anyway.
