Again, hiding stuff from particular users or groups is a common part
of many (most?) filesystem security mechanisms. I believe that if
wush.net offers svn hosting, they should have a authentication system
in place, and not rely on the idea that people probably won't be able
to guess what the other repositories they host are named.

Besides, if you base your security on the notion that others can't
guess the name of your repository, you're also kind of lending
yourself to brute-force guessing, are you not?
