Is there any alternative to setting client certificate / passphrase in servers file?

My apologies if it is a FAQ, I tried to google to no avail..

I am trying to setup repository exposed only over SSL. Finally I got it
right, the only remaining problem is how to avoid annoying challenges
for certificate / passphrase on every svn command? The only way
mentioned in book is editing servers file, but servers is a way to setup
global parameters, not per-user ones, not to mention necessity to put
clear text password in config file.

First of all, am I misunderstanding something and client certificate is
actually supposed to be issued to machine running client, not to user?

Assuming this is the case I don't see any problem with setting
certificate in config file, but what about passphrase? Is it possible to
cache it the same way as username/password cached? Or even better,
should not certificate be imported into subversion client just once,
similar to way one imports certificate into browser?
