The trouble with this is that by doing this, you are removing most of the
protection the SSL certificate is offering you.

Subversion can be configured to trust a root CA certificate(s), which will
mean in theory that subversion will always trust any new certs it finds,
on condition those certs are signed by a trusted root CA. This should make
your problem go away.
