New submission from Yegor Bugayenko <team at fazend.com>:

I'm trying to install Python EGG with `easy_install`, providing a URL of Subversion repository, where sources are hosted:

    $ easy_install svn://user:secret@svn.example.com/repo/trunk/my-egg
    Authentication realm: <svn://svn.example.com:3690> repo
    Password for 'me':
The problem is that the repository is password protected. How can I provide the desired username/password to `easy_install`?

Everything works fine when I'm using `http://` protocol instead of `svn://`
