use of plaintext passwords in svnserve.conf and client-side caches

From: Alexis Huxley <ahuxley_at_gmx.net>

Two questions related to passwords being in plaintext:

Firstly, is there any way to use encrypted passwords in
<repo>/conf/passwd instead of plaintext?

(I am aware of svn+ssh://, but am currently at the stage of a migration
project where I want to try as many access methods as possible in
order to collect some performance data before deciding which protocols
will be made available to users.)

Secondly, is there any way for the server (apache+mod_dav_svn and
svnserve) to 'force' the client not to cache repo access passwords
in plaintext?

(Clearly a user could install their own client, so perhaps the word
'force' should be 'advise' instead.)

I've searched tigris/issues/book/google but not turned up anything.
Any advice appreciated! Thanks!
