HTTP Authentication by Username Embedded in URL

Dear all,

I would like to know why on my system (I don't think it depends on it, but it is Ubuntu 8.10), the username can't be used within the URL:

svn co https://username:password@server/repos/

The URL does work in the browser (Mozilla, empty cache)!

And if it would work, I may use it in svn:externals because that doesn't accept --username and --password switches. And that would mean that I can link in another repository with a guest:guest account relieving the users from the burden of typing "guest" and "guest" when they encounter my open-source directory on this external repository.

Kind regards,
