Unfortunately, I haven't found any authentication options in
TortoiseSVN. From what I can tell, it will attempt to authenticate in
the following order, and only the following order:

1: No authentication.

2: Use SSPI with your Windows login name and password (version 1.4 with
an Apache server and mod_auth_sspi only).

3: Prompt for username and password. If I read the docs right, it will
not cache your credentials, which could seriously annoy your users.
