Oh... you mean an *environment variable* named CVSROOT. I was awfully
confused until I figured that out. Thought you were talking about the
directory named CVSROOT...

No, there is nothing equivalent. However, like CVS, once you check out a
working copy, you won't need the URL again. But if you're checking out lots
of working copies... well :-)

I would suggest something like:

$ export REPOS=http://repos.example.com/repos/project
$ svn co $REPOS/trunk
$ svn co $REPOS/branches/rwa

That will at least minimize your typing.
