Ah, interesting theory. I wonder what those poor developers working for
some company are supposed to do then though. After all a company is not
really trustworthy, and their PCs not necessarily better secured
(esp. not against stealing). Of course you could disable the caching in
the config, but if for some reason the config gets lost or whatever you
will not find out that your credentials have been stored until the
_second_ time you commit (or have they finally added a message saying
that credentials have been stored?).
Well, I probably should rant on their devel list instead of here if I
ever get the motivation, for now I just set .svn/auth owner to root and
chmod 0000 it, easier than to search the documentation each time...
