Probably it's not only a firewall but a http-proxy and those tend to not
understand DAV/DELTAV although it's a standard protocol over http. Maybe we can 
try to completly mirror 80 to 8080 (might be a task for Jum during the sprint)
as a workaround. 

It's not a big problem because currently only the www-part of pypy 
uses external items.  I hope to give a short talk during the BerlinSprint why
svn's external items are incredibly useful, btw.
