No problem.

Would anyone be traumatized if I worked on a patch to ra_svn to allow
user-defined additional command line options to the svn-tunnel-agent as
used in ra_svn_open? I can coax plink/putty to fudge my user name with a
session (which is not the same between the two machines), but openssh in
cygwin requires "-l username" on the command line.
