This doesn't work for me. I'm sure the problem is on my end, but my
svn skills are too rusty to figure it out. I get this:

$ svn checkout svn+ssh://pythondev@svn.python.org/peps
Permission denied (publickey,keyboard-interactive).

svn: Connection closed unexpectedly
$svn --version
svn, version 1.2.0 (r14790)

The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

  - handles 'http' scheme
  - handles 'https' scheme

  - handles 'svn' scheme
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
  - handles 'file' scheme


I can ssh to svn.python.org just fine, with no password (it says it's
dinsdale). I can checkout the read-only versions just fine. I can work
with the pydotorg svn repository just fine (checked something in last
