Crazy thought here but would a socket not be a bad choice here?

Imagine being able to ssh tunnel into the SVN server and run the helper with 
filesystem access to the SVN repo.

Akin to the pushy project use case.

SSH into the machine, copy the required components to the machine, and use the 
Nothing needed but SSH and python.  In this case SSH, SVN, and the helper would 
be needed.

This also would work just fine with the local host too.
