I am wondering if the password be change to an encrypted form in the future?
I have check the project home page and there is no mention to fix this in
the plans.

I was also trying to fix this in the code level but I obviously don't
understand cryptography and the library used well enough to figure out how
to do it without breaking the authentication system. Would it be possible to
use the libsvn_ra_svn library to encrypt the password to be stored into the
passwd file and just read and compare during authentication?
