Authentication - storing of passwords in ~/.subversion/auth/svn.simple

As of the fact being back from honeymoon, I started out again to migrate my
CVS to SVN. I updated to 0.29 and added authentication to httpd for svn.
This works very well...

BUT: I encountered that subversion client stores my passwords in
*CLEARTEXT* in ~/.subversion/auth/svn.simple/<some_file>. This is IMHO not
so nice. Storing of passwords is ok, so that it can remember it for
subsequent use, but it should encrypt the stored password in someway that
only subversion can use it again...

Have I overseen something in config or is it missing??? It it is missing it
should IMHO be added...

What can I do to prevent storing my password in cleartext? (except
disabling storing it) in ~/.subversion/config?

Thanks for your help...
