The short answer to this is: bullshit.

SVN has several ways from client -> server.

http, https, svnserve (never used it "standalone") and plain old 
svn+ssh. Or anything else that can provide a binary-safe tunnel, just 
like rsync.

If you use rsync over ssh now, you could also use svn over ssh.

So there doesn't has to be anything "visible", whatever that means.

Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as 
bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer 
wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated, 
cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
