Ahhh... yes - I *always* forget that (not a problem in some 
environments, but it is a problem here at the ASF and I'm not at all

It is technically possible, but it means leaving a file with username 
and password with SVN commit access on the zone. Obviously, this is not 
a good idea from a security perspective.
