The tunnel agent test in creates a /simulated/ svnserve
protocol session in order to test the agent API and implementation. When
you do this in your program, you don't have to simulate anything; you
only have to write a class that implements the TunnelAgent interface.
Depending on how your tunnel protocol works, you may also have to
implement a CloseTunnelCallback.

When the TunnelAgent.openTunnel method is called, it gets a request and
response byte channel. Your implementation must read raw bytes from the
request channel and push them through your tunnel; and read raw bytes
from your tunnel and push them to the response channel. You don't have
to worry about where the data come from (request data will be generated
in libsvn_ra_svn, and response data will be generated by the server).
Your implementation is responsible for creating the raw data tunnel
between the client and the server through which these data streams will
flow. This can be a simple socket, for example, or it can be a
completely custom protocol implementation, as long as it is
bidirectional and does not modify the data stream.

See the documentation in for details about what the
various methods do. It's possible to create a single tunnel agent
implementation to handle several different tunnel protocols.
