Hmm... I don't think that's the case. It is for the svn+ssh protocol,
where authentication takes place at the ssh layer and each connection
gets its own instance of svnserve, but not for the svn protocol,
where there is one central svnserve running as a particular system
user and usernames and passwords are authenticated against a
plaintext file.
