Because we are using svn+ssh here is what happens:

[williams@ics-srv-phy1 svn-xaldev]$ svn update
tap@ics-srv01's password

The url that my colleague used to checkout a working copy has his
username there. Again, in CVS we were able to override this by
specifying cvs -d <my CVSROOT> update

So, how can we do something similar with SVN.
