I think you had it with the redirect causing an error in svn. The change to https needs to be done at the request end (AFAIK) so if svn can't/won't do that properly you are better off failing it with a useful error than having the traffic to you be unencrypted.

My opinion only, the client is not working in a good way, break it rather than having it work in an actively BAD way.
Yes, that was what I thought, since there is no real way
to get a redirect with svn in the picture.  I tried it in all
sorts of ways but was not able to.  It would be nice if
there was a way to do a redirect cleanly, but alas, it's
not to be had.

not that this is going to help but you are trying to solve a client
problem with a server solution. I don't see your problem as not being
able to 'redirect cleanly' because in my mind, 'RedirectPermanent' is as
clean as you can get but rather the client application apparently
doesn't have enough http skills to deal with the Redirect information it
has been given by the server. Probably some of that is about security
because you really don't want an unsophisticated client to willy nilly
accept redirection to another host/site/URL.

Yes, it makes sense what you are saying.
