Public / Private Keys (was: TSVN asks for password over and over and over...)

Well, it appears there may be no easy way to get around the issue of
TSVN asking for my password multiple times during each operation,
when using svn+ssh.

The only solution seems to be to establish an ssh public/private key
pair and install those on the server and on any client machines that
need access.

That comes with its own set of problems as indicated in earlier
messages to this list... problems having to do with lab machines that
are accessible to persons who may not be authorized to access the repository.

I have read somewhere about the idea of putting the key onto a USB
dongle or so-called "thumb drive" so that access is restricted to he
who has the dongle. Are any of you doing this? How do you handle
the situation where the dongle shows up as drive E: on one machine
and drive F: on another, or as two different drives at two different
times on the same machine (depending on what else is installed at that time)?
