It's "not that common" because it's just plain bad policy.

TSVN menu -> Settings ->Saved Data -> Authentication Data -> Clear
will clear the cached credentials. It's the same as running "del
%APPDATA%\Subversion\auth\*" on the command line (or pretty close to
that). The trouble is that you have to instruct people to do it every

You could also uncomment the line store-auth-creds = no in
%APPDATA%\Subversion\config and then clear the stored credentials,
which would prevent the credentials from being cached until someone
unsets this option (IOW, users would be prompted every time creds are
needed by the server).
