Why Cygwin? Unless you have an absolute requirement to use the Cygwin
client, use the native Win32 client. Cygwin introduces oddities in how
Subversion handles some things.

I think this sounds like a very limited use case; I don't recall
anyone asking for something like this previously. Most people have
only a single set of credentials for a given server and use them
across all repositories.

This can also be worked around by setting up a different realm for
each repository, but that would require additional Apache
