SVN+SSH avoiding password

This is taken from http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.0/ch06s03.html#svn-ch-6-sect-3.3 :

"If you want to prevent ssh from repeatedly asking for your password, you'll need to use a separate memory-caching tool like ssh-agent on a Unix-like system, or pageant on Windows."

It means that every Windows-user of SVN (via TortoiseSVN) should follow these steps, in order to avoid typing the password every time:
1) Install pageant.exe and generate SSH public key and private key with puttygen.exe.
2) Copy the public key on the (Linux) SVN-server in .ssh/authorised_keys.
Of course, every used needs an account on the SVN-server.

There are 500 users! I am the SVN-admin. Is there any easier / faster way to avoid typing the password every time if we insist on using "svn+ssh" instead of "svn"? I am not really happy to spend so much time and effort just to avoid typing a password.

Thanks a lot!
