This is probably a reasonable request...

However, the reason seems bogus.
AFAIK, TortoiseSVN already stores user-specific configuration in appropriate
locations (%APPDATA% and HKCU), so different users should already have
different authentication data.
If it is not so, then I consider it a bug to be fixed,
not a reason to add a workaround feature.
