Maybe I'm confused. Or perhaps we're using "authentication" in
different senses on different levels. I think there's a question I
should have asked sooner...

Normally, access to the Subversion repositories I use is actually authenticated
via an ssh key used for login to the server host. I'm not sure in what sense
the username field actually contributes any security-relevant information
in a setup like that. Does it?
