I agree (having recently been bitten by this myself). At the very
least, something like the following should be added to the FAQ:

In order to use a non-standard ssh port or a different user name when
connecting with svn+ssh:// you can set the following environment variable:

        export SVN_SSH='ssh -l youruser -p someport'

and all subsequent svn+ssh:// connections will use that ssh command line
instead of the default. The user and port information can also be set
on a host by host basis using the ssh configuration file. See
ssh_config(5) for more details.
