svn client authentication agent

Is there a way to use an authentication agent to provide passwords to
the svn client?

It would be useful to be able to specify the password for multiple
operations without having to store it on disk.

For example, like GPG2 is able to do, and Putty with Pageant.

The advantage is that the password is dropped as soon as the agent is
stopped, whereas with disk storage it is considerably harder to remove
the password.

An alternative might be to allow passwords to be stored on removable
media, but as far as I can tell it's not possible to store passwords
separately from the rest of the configuration information.
