It *should* be possible... I'm not entirely familiar with that
environment. But what happens if you don't use the SVN_SSH variable at
all and just load both keys into the SSH agent? I'm wondering if the
SSH agent will then try either key until one works?

(Playing with the SSH agent in Linux is something that I haven't gotten
around to yet. So that may be a false lead.)
