Only partly true ;)

credentials are cached by server and the authentication realm (i.e., the
string the server sends when asking for authentication, you can see that
string in the auth dialog of TSVN at the top).
You can configure apache to send a different auth realm string for every
repository (for example, make it include the repository name).
