It depends entirely on what you're using on the back end for
authentication. It's potentially dangerous to use normal shell logins
and accounts, because the Linux and UNIX clients store the passwords
in plain-text by default in the user's local home directory. But many
people like the utility of HTTPS access,and have security attitudes
like "if someone can get at my machine, I've got much bigger
problems". They drive me nuts, but it's their choice.

If you're using a file based password list, or use SSH keys for
svn+ssh, or whatever you use, it depends on your back end
authentication. Can you describe what you actually have?
