And to be clear, allowing ssh access to the svn command does not have
to mean giving easy shell access.   Here's a web page that documents
two ways to restrict execution access via ssh:

Note: I said "easy shell access".  I don't know if there is some way
to get a shell via svn (whether buffer overflow or legitimate
but obscure command).  If you really need to protect against criminal
mischief (as opposed to just user error); you should obviously vet any
method carefully.
