Ah yes - if the server weren't already set up as an svn: server.
I seem to have sussed it. You just do:
ssh -L 3690:localhost:3690 <target server>
first and then leave this ssh session open for as long as you want to
use subversion. Then invoke svn with:
svn list svn://localhost/<repository>
and you're away.
I would have thought it was more logical for svn's inbuilt
tunnel-over-ssh feature to work in this way, but it doesn't.
