Can SourceTree connect to hosted SVN repos through SSH?

SourceTree (v1.3.0) looks like a great GUI for Git and I am just beginning to experiment with it. I was especially glad to see that it supports git-svn. However, I'm having trouble connecting to a client's SVN repo that requires an SSH tunnel. Connected using Tunnelblick, I am able to run commands through the CLI, but when I paste the URL into SourceTree's Add Repository dialog, the following warning is displayed with a 'Details' button next to it:

This is not a valid source path / URL

Clicking 'Details' displays the following error:

abort: repository svn+ssh://somedomain.com/repo/trunk not found!

fatal: Unable to find remote helper for 'svn+ssh'

Is SourceTree not capable of connecting to hosted SVN repositories through SSH, or do I need to do something differently? The result is the same whether I use the embedeed Git or the one on my system (1.7.5.4). By the way, I'm running Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6.8).

Also, I see Hosted Repositories gives you the option of connecting to repos hosted on Bitbucket, GitHub, or Kiln. Is it possible to connect to a self-hosted Git repo through SSH?

My mistake, I should have included the username, as in:

svn+ssh://username@somedomain.com/repo/trunk

I'm able to connect now.
