In svn+ssh://, authentication is being done in ssh, so there is no
(should be) option to specify a password. You can pass a username
through the URL, though:
  svn+ssh://username@server/path

A quick test showed that you cannot pass a password through this, which
is good:)

If you're loooking for some conveniance, try using ssh-agent in
combination with ssh keys.
