If you have a normal set of developers, this will cause a lot of pain
and make Subversion very painful to use. When I need to run some svn
commands, I'll normally run a few in a row, so having to type a
password every time will be painful.

If you're tying your Subversion authentication to ActiveDirectory or
LDAP and don't want these passwords cached on the clients, then I
recommend having Subversion specific passwords.

You don't have to be concerned about malicious commits, since you can
always revert them.
