I think it's unnecessary. Currently, you can fetch any of the dirs
(LinuxBIOSv2, LinuxBIOSv3, util) through either of these methods, it is

I mean telling users (in the wiki) to do:
svn co svn://linuxbios.org/repos/trunk/util
for normal setups and:
svn co https://linuxbios.org/svn/trunk/util
for firewalled setups.
