I'm not clear what you mean by "caching of credentials".  Subversion
typically sends multiple HTTP requests over a single connection.  Each
HTTP request has its own authn credentials and caching those would not
make sense, although Apache may cache any data used to validate the
credentials.  Subversion's authz file is parsed when first needed and
cached for use by any subsequent HTTP requests on the same connection.
