I did not intend to bash anybody. It just seemed odd to see those 
apparently needless repeated request, as well never seeing gzip 
compressed responses which could have made SubVersion servers much aste.

I see but that compression only happens inside your ssh tunnel. I am 
sure a direct connection with gzip/deflate compression would be much faster.
