I have, as of this morning, just got Zope webdav working through Apache,
with Apache only allowing HTTPS access (I assume this is what you are
trying to achieve, for security reasons?). No need for SSH tunnels at all.
Just some URL rewriting:

RewriteRule ^/dav/(.*)

(host name changed to protect the innocent). I have Zope serving only to, serving webdav on a separate port (9675) to HTTP. I have other
rewrite rules to cater for ordinary HTTP (non-webdav) access. Apache is
serving up HTTPS on port 9670. With my config up above, you prepend '/dav'
to the path to access things via webdav e.g.
https://example.com:9670/dav/myfolder/ for "webdavs" access to
"myfolder" instead of https://example.com:9670/myfolder/ for https access.

I also have applied a patch to Zope to make it work with Microsoft's
latest (failed) attempt to get webdav right. I used the info here:
http://teyc.editthispage.com/2005/06/02 .. note: add the line to the
OPTIONS method in the file that they mention. I can add a new webdav
"network place" under XP and drag/drop/delete of files works. Of course,
the usual Linux clients work without any patching.
