Because sourceforge.net uses different servers for subversion and web,
the files are not directly accessible from the web server.

I only need to display them (read-only), like includeSite. However, I
would like pmwiki to process and display the content of the URL,
rather than simply wrap it in a frame.

Putting this to an extreme, what I want to do are:

1. Manage core documents (in pmwiki format) of my project in a
subversion server. (I do not want to have two copies of the same
2. Edit these documents locally and submit them to my subversion
repository. (This is easier to do than logging in to my website).
3. pmwiki website gets the latest version from the subversion web
interface, and display them. (This is almost there with includeSite,
but the output is unnatural).

Note that I do not have to login to my pmwiki website to change the
content, because the content is essentially managed locally.
