C# SVN Encrypted Authentication wrapper for Windows and svnserve.exe

Hey all :)

I'm really proud to announce a small app I wrote located here ->
https://github.com/darkguy2008/SVNEncryptedAuth <- that will hook into
the svnserve.exe process and encrypt the passwords located in the
"passwd" file, while making it use a temporary file with the plaintext
passwords on access (deleted almost immediately for security).

This is made so the passwords don't get stored in plaintext but with
some sort of encryption. I don't know why this wasn't planned in the
release of that app, since we all know plaintext passwords are BAD and
SASL is a pain to set up under Windows (also, not portable since it
requires registry keys) and since I don't want to go with the hassle
of downloading the source code and compiling the whole thing,
developing an IAT hook patch was easier to do.

I hope you guys like the project and becomes useful for anyone here.

Comments & suggestions welcome, thanks!
