The password should be encrypted already in that location using the
Windows Crypto API (assuming you're using a sufficiently recent
release of Subversion/TSVN). You should be more concerned with the
password storage on the server and over the wire; depending on how
your server is configured, they may be stored & transmitted in
plaintext there.
