Thanks, but it does not work:
$ svn list http://host.domain.com/svn/svn1
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/svn1'
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/svn1': 301 Moved Permanently
if this is what it actually reported, then you didn't implement
correctly. What is document root in /etc/http/conf.d/ssl.conf ?

Actually, that is exactly the documented behavior. RedirectPermanent sends back a 301 status message to the client. A web browser would respond by quietly following the redirect, but Subversion does not do that. Subversion, when presented with any 30x redirect, will dump a message and fail rather than follow the redirect... which is exactly why it will never do what Daniel wants it to do.
So, does that mean there is no solution that can work for what I
am trying to do?  I was also hoping to confine redirection only
to the /svn location.

From everywhere I looked on the Internet, many claim to get it
working but I have not been able to duplicate it.  I constantly get
various errors from the different schemes I have tried, to force
redirection from http to https for subversion @ /svn only.

Using the Proxy command, it sorta works but as you pointed it out,
and I have verified it, the http works except that it does not actually
"switch" to https asking for an SSL self-signed certificate but it works
if I use the https:// URL string.

I sure hope it is not something I have done wrong in my conf.d/*.conf
files as I discovered that my early attempts in setting up a basic SVN
setup was foiled by having system-config-httpd.conf overriding everything
and by removing this file, I was able to get to the point where I am now.
