Well, if TSVN (or Subversion) *could* remember your password, then SSH
wouldn't be used anymore. Imagine a tool that could intercept and
decrypt any password transferred over an encrypted pipe, or
intercepting the password of another process...

Only the SSH tools you're using can store your password, because they
have access to it - Subversion doesn't.

So use pageant or some other tool like it:
