Passswords not encrypted

I have just found out something that I'm not sure it's right.

I have been using Subversion for a while now, with Apache and its
password system, i.e. htpasswd. The passwords in the Apache files are
encrypted and that's fine of course.

In the .subversion/auth/svn.simple subdirectory of a user's home
directory (on AIX) there is one file per repository, and the passwords
in these files are not encrypted.

Could someone tell me why it is so? Is it possible to encrypt those too?
If not, is there a way to not have non-encrypted passwords anywhere?
