This is also the recommended method for another reason: it vastly
decreases the possibility of messed up rights on the repository, since
all users will be accessing the repository from a single account.
svn+ssh:// access is simply a remote form of file:// access, both of
which require the repository files to be owned (or group owned) by
everyone who needs access. By using a single service account, with
separate keys for each user, to access the repository files, you
eliminate this complication.
