svn import: Add direct HTTP access
Some SVN repositories that are accessible through HTTP don't like when I retrieve files using SVN methods ("internal server error"). Therefore, I added an option to get the contents using (persistent) HTTP directly. This also reduces round-trip time, from two or three requests down to one. Also corrected error handling a bit.

+-d::
+ Use direct HTTP requests if possible. The "<path>" argument is used
+ only for retrieving the SVN logs; the path to the contents is
+ included in the SVN log.

+-D::
+ Use direct HTTP requests if possible. The "<path>" argument is used
+ for retrieving the logs, as well as for the contents.
++
+There's no safe way to automatically find out which of these options to

<SVN_repository_URL>::
The URL of the SVN module you want to import. For local
repositories, use "file:///absolute/path".
++
+If you're using the "-d" or "-D" option, this is the URL of the SVN
+repository itself; it usually ends in "/svn".
