You can trivially write a wrapper (in Perl or even shell functions), which would
do this for you. There is no good reason (IMNSHO) to make the commandline
parser even more complicated, for something that will benefit only those people
who [almost] always use the same repository. The other reason why this isn't
that helpful is that it is only used when initially creating a WC; once you have
a WC, you don't need to refer to the repository anymore.

Something like this would work under bash:

export SVNROOT=/path/to/repos

function checkout {
        /usr/local/bin/svn checkout $SVNROOT/$1

Add that to the system profile scripts and you are good to go...
