There are some listed here:  Others like
Madcap Flare (technical documentation) delegate the svn client piece so
they can work with e.g. TortoiseSVN

I'm not saying that svn+ssh is a bad choice.  I'm saying that it can be
more difficult to roll out and support because users don't understand it,
or don't know how to configure their systems for it, or need additional
software.  With HTTP(s) access, you just have to provide users with the
more familiar 1) website, 2) username, 3) password
