So ehr, after small discussion with Sven Herzberg today, this is what I
propose / request someone to figure out:

 * Put instructions in live.g.o/NewSVNRepos that anyone wanting an SVN
   repos on should do:
   ssh userid svn gnome org /home/admin/bin/create-repository some-repos

For this I'd like someone to make a script that:
1. is secure
2. is really secure
3. is fast (some people log in and out of SSH/SVN every 5 secs and do
this for hours)
4. checks SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND, sees the regexp
   ^/home/admin/bin/create-repository [-a-z]+$

   and calls sudo /home/admin/bin/create-repository $REPOS
4. by default, it should call: /usr/bin/svnserve -t
5. Oh, syntax for /home/admin/bin/create-repository would be nice too
(restricted to gnomecvs group and again checking the only argument is

(I could figure this out myself, but I'd rather work on Mango:)
