Actually, proxying has been there for a while.

There are four different ways you can connect to the Subversion
repositories.  You can choose port 80 or port 8000 access, and you
can choose between HTML and XML viewing. 

The real Subversion server listens to port 8000, so that is the
ideal way to contact the server.  If you have a restrictive firewall
that prevents connecting to this port, you can connect to port 80,
which is a proxy server to port 8000.  I have had problems in the
past with using the proxy, so your mileage may vary. 

The second choice is only relevant for surfing the repository with
your browser. If you have a current browser that understands XML,
then you can surf the repository and get a nicer view of the
repository, otherwise you can use the HTML view. This choice is not
relevant for the Subversion client, but I've restricted commits to
the XML view, so make certain to check out any working copies using
the HTML URL.
