In my opinion, the proper way to address this issue is to configure a
username for svn.debian.org in ~/.ssh/config; that way
svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/... works directly, without having to specify a

Example (if you're a DD):

    Host *.debian.org
        User foo


    Host alioth.debian.org svn.debian.org git.debian.org
        User foo-guest
