Unfortunately, no it does not support this. There are two ways to handle
authentication:

1) You can supply the username and password when you defined the
repository connection in the SVN Repositories view.

2) You can leave the username and password blank, and instead use the svn
command line one time and supply the username and password to the command
line and allow it to cache the values.

There are some other things, that Subclipse will not prompt for:

1) Accept SSL cert for an https:// connection.

2) Accept SSH keys for an svn+ssh:// connection.

In both cases, you have to use the command line at least one time and
accept the item (p)ermanent so that it is cached.
