The error message now looks like this:

$ svn ls http://svn.apache.org/foo
svn: E170013: Unable to connect to a repository at URL
svn: E175003: The server does not support the HTTP/DAV protocol

Ideas for better wording wold be most welcome.

That's not accurate: the server may support it but not at that URL. How about,

"There is no Subversion repository (or WebDAV service) at that URL."

Add some hints?  E.g.,

"If you are the server admin, make sure you have the 'SVNPath' (or
'SVNParentPath') and 'DAV svn' directives in the <Location> block"

I'm not too keen on the user seeing such a message. Most usage occurs against already tested servers, so it's likely they just mistyped a URL or copy-pasted an inappropriate URL.
