Aha! But Subversion already has a way to read authn creds from a file:

--config-dir=x

All we're lacking is a convenient way to put the required creds into the file. A user interface could be:

svn auth authenticate $REPO_URL

or, if you insist on being able to cache a user name and password when you don't currently have access to the server:

svn auth authenticate $REPO_URL --force --username=y --password=z

Thoughts?
