Is sourceforge really only allowing svn access through https? Those guys
never cease to amaze me...

Maybe we could ask them to open up anonymous access through http, or
use a standard CA.

Theres two options otherwise, one is to tell the user how to add certs
permanently, and have them add sourceforge permanently. Or figure out
how to create a configuration that makes svn happy and point svn to it
in the handler.

As for wget, wget already seems to use https just fine, at the very
least its non-interactive (by definition), so if it cant find a cert
then it fails and its up to the user to add the cert to the config.
