Please reply to the users list, not to me personally.

The users list is the right place to ask for improvements to the
documentation. I will have a look to see if there si a way to make
this clearer.

The users list is also the right place for feature requests. Actually
I have asked for the same feature myself, but it turns out that it is
quite a lot of work to implement, or at least more work than anyone is
prepared to put in for a relatively little-used feature.

There is no subversion API to do this, so we would have to decode the
different auth cache files manually, and that could change with
different versions of subversion. You could request that such an API
be added on the *subversion* users mailing list (list cached items,
delete cached item), which would help getting a UI added to
TortoiseSVN.

Note that the auth data is not cached by repository URL directly, but
by repository realm, which can be a group of repositories. I don't
think this is a big issue because there is normally an obvious link
between the two.
