Are you suggesting setting an environment variable? I have more than one
repository checked out on this system, and they do not all use the same

I thought that might be the case, but I'm not sure how to specify it in
the svn command string -- which seems to be necessary since making a
universal (to this user account) configuration change would then break
access to other svn repositories.
