The USB stick might give you less i/o throughput than an internal hard
disk, and it might fail early due to flash wearing out.

Otherwise this sounds like a fine setup to me. In any case please do
not forget to keep backups (investing in another big disk and using
'svnadmin hotcopy' to copy your repositories to it once a week or so
will pay off as soon as the primary disk fails).
