Well, I absolutely *hate* using ssh to access subversion.

How do you not have the same thing with ssh?

Myself, I work from a variety of machines on a variety of different 
platforms, and trying to juggle multiple public keys with undocumented 
and unsupported upload facilities is painful. The alternative is to try 
and juggle one public key across multiple machines and ssh 
implementations which is just as painful, not to mention insecure.

I prefer using password-protected (as opposed to key-protected) https.
What do other people prefer?
