Only if GitHub provides that service. I doubt they do -- they're not
converting Git repositores to Subversion repositories, they're emulating
a Subversion HTTP server that gets information directly from git
repositories plus (presumably) some additional data to maintain stable
commit-id->revision mappings.

To support svn+ssh:// they'd have to emulate a second Subversion protocol.

P.S.: Clearly, the cause of the issue discussed in this thread is that
the emulation is incomplete.
