Not possible. In CVS, the client "pushes" credentials by logging
in. In Subversion, the server "pulls" credentials from the client
whenever it decides authentication is necessary. There's no way for
the client to predict if/when this will happen. The client can only
react to a server-pull, it cannot 'push'.
