The only thing you have to be careful of is usernames.  If your local
username is different than your belgarath username then you need to do
something slightly different:

`export SVN_SSH='ssh -l [username]'` (where 'username' is your
belgarath account).  Then the normal svn+ssh:// access should
work fine.  If this doesn't work, please don't blame me :)  It's all
here, and google never gets anything wrong :) -

Best regards,
