Yup...ssh tunnels are the best.  I'm helping a friend with some
development for a startup co, and we're using ssh tunnels to access
our svn server.  It works just great, and you really don't even have
to worry much about the security of the svn server itself as it's not
directly visible to the outside at all.  We have ssh running on a
non-standard port and have it restricted to non-root rsa key access
only, which makes for a pretty secure setup.
