Most proxies (not all -- some actually check it starts with ssl
handshake) don't check what's going on https connection. So an easy
solution is to run ssh on port 443 if you are not serving secured web
pages. The advantage is that it's easier to setup than webdavs (many web
proxies don't support webdav or don't support all of it, so running over
plain http may not work -- and besides it can be monitored).
