      Description

      Currently, the only way to modify passwords for svnserve is for the
      administrator to manually edit the plain-text file.  Which means (s)he needs to
      know the passwords for all users.  The svn client ought to be able to modify
      passwords for svnserve'd repositories, to reduce this issue.  (To eliminate it,
      encode the password file and give svnadmin a command to create a user.)  My
      arguments in favor are found in
      <http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ReadMsg?listName=users&msgNo=40874>;
      buddy confirmation in
      <http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=users&msgNo=41072>.  (I also
      received confirmation off-list, but that doesn't fit the buddy system requirements.)
