I don't know much hg, and certainly do not want to push anything, but 
just mention that bzr has support for svn, and it is quite good. I have 
never tried with ipython svn, but it works for numpy and scipy svn, 
which are arguably bigger, right ? bzr also serves directly in http. I 
don't know how feasable it would be, but maybe putting some ready only 
bzr repository synchronised with the svn would be possible ?

I have some problems with proxy (my uni network has no DNS, everything 
is done through the proxy: great way to expose proxy bugs in softwares), 
and none with bzr.
