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

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.
