FWIW, changing your nameservers is unrelated to whether a site will be accessed over IPv4 or IPv6--it only affects whether the *nameserver* will be accessed over IPv4 or IPv6. Lookups will still return AAAA records even if all of your nameservers are IPv4.

In any case, I can access a SVN repos over HTTP to an IPv6 address using TortoiseSVN 1.7.x and 1.8.x, but I only have IPv4 nameservers. From the error message you're getting, it looks like svn is having trouble resolving www.nlnetlabs.nl when your nameservers are IPv6. However, when your nameservers are IPv4, I suspect svn will still connect to www.nlnetlabs.nl over IPv6. You can use tcpdump to confirm, or if you have access to them, look at the logs on www.nlnetlabs.nl.
