Given that the info you are putting in the cache is only used by JavaSVN,
why not use the encryption tools in Java to encrypt the information in the
cache, like Subversion does with WinCrypt?

Also, you mentioned that Subclipse encrypts its cached info stored in
Eclipse. To my knowledge that is not true. It might be obfuscated by
Eclipse but I do not believe we are explicitly adding our own encryption.
