In openssh, you can put a block like this in ~/.ssh/config:

Host boom
User John.Doe
HostName boom.acme.com.invalid

Now anytime you refer to "boom", ssh knows you really mean
"Firstname.Lastname@boom.acme.com.invalid"

See the openssh docs for more detail. If you use some other ssh
program, it probably has something equivalent.

Usually this is just a shortcut to save typing, but if the URL is
hardcoded in an svn:externals property rather than entered by the user,
it actually becomes important.
