I don't think anyone would object to GPG2 support for password
storage. It just needs to be implemented.

If you use svn+ssh:// you can use an ssh-agent (as you pointed out).
Other options on UNIX are KDE Wallet and Gnome Keyring, which provide
agent-like functionality.

On Windows and Mac, your Subversion credentials are by default stored
encrypted on disk and retrieved transparently as needed.
