Sorry... you can't create a directory named '.svn' either, nor can
you create a 'CVS' directory in cvs. :-)

AFAIK, we're not parsing the username@host syntax within the URL. So
the only reason it's being stored in the entry is because that's the
URL you passed to 'svn checkout' originally. The URL is treated as an
opaque object. Only the .svn/auth/ area counts for authentication.
