When you say "SVN server" are you including all the various svnserve and
Apache configurations? I know that Apache in particular allows lots of
different authentication schemes (LDAP for instance), and it's my own
lack of knowledge here that brings about my question.

The SVN server is not able to control client credential caching (or
any other options which can be set via the client config file or
command-line parameters).
