My take is everything would be keyed off the name used to talk to
the repository with.

So, if my local user is "bobjones" and my SVN account is "bjones" -
my access permissions are identified via "bjones." This way, if
I migrate to another machine and my local user is "jonesb" and I
checkout a repository, the permissions are identical as I still login
to the SCM system via "bjones."

My current thought is "Yes."

Look, my thoughts aren't set in stone either. I'm just trying to
find my way in the dark here. I have a problem I'd like to solve,
and, well, I'd like to solve it. -- justin
