As I imagine it, the subversion password would also be the password that
unlocks the encryption. And using a ssl connection this password would
also be safe during transfer.

There is pam-mount, which allows to mount a device when logging into
a unix machine. That would be an option, but I would first have to log
in e.g. via ssh and then access the repository. But I would like to do
this at once. Does anyone have an idea?
