Only one userid per realm cached in .subversion directory

Hi all

I'm using subversion version 1.6.9 under Cygwin and storing my project
on projectlocker

The problem I'm having is that a colleague is also using ProjectLocker
and the svn CLI is caching just one username/password per realm, and the
realm is just "<https://free1.projectlocker.com:443> Subversion

That is, it doesn't include the repository path.

The effect of this is that every time I do repository updates for my
project, it asks for my username/password and caches that.
But as soon as I do some updates for his repository, I need to re-enter
my credentials.
This flip flops back and forwards between the two user names I have to
use on projectlocker.

Do you think it's desirable / possible to cache the credentials on a
lower, more specific level than the site name?
