I'm using the Apache server with SSL and LDAP, but apparently the svn
command can't do sessions and still stores the password in plain text in
the .subversion directory on the client. My understanding is that the
only way around this would be to use svnserve with ssh. And for ssh every
user will have to have a command line login to the box (unless we block it
with firewall rules or something). Or have I missed something?

Whatever the arguments for caching the password in plain text, and I've
seen a lot of discussion on the subject in the past couple of months I've
been on the list, my employer has a policy against it so we can't do it.
Server or client side.
