Re: is the svn protocol encrypted?

AFAIK if you only use svn:// it's not encrypted. There are two ways to
fix your problem, first one is to use Apache with mod_svn and mod_ssl.
Second one is for your users to use a ssh key agent.
The basic procedure is for the users to generate public/private key
pairs with ssh-keygen, append the public key of every user to the
.ssh/authorized_keys2 file and put "ssh-add" into your login script
(e.g. .bashrc or sth similar).
This will require them to enter their ssh password (for the key) once
when they log in and afterwards the ssh-agent will take care of login
etc. There are a couple of really good howtos about this, just do some
googling.

Looking at your other problems I'd recommend you take a look at using
Apache as a server for svn, this way you could solve several of your
problems at once (like multiple repos, simple paths to the repo etc.).
