I think he's talking about the repository passwords that are used when
accessing the repository using svnserve (in repo/conf/passwd), not the
SVN client password cache that the FAQ talks about.

I think it would be better to not store passwords, but only their
hashes, just like Apache does. Maybe a htpasswd-like tool should be
added to svnserve?
