As stated before, that would only affect users on that (I assume)
Linux box who have not run the svn client previously. It will not
control behavior for remote clients, nor will it change the behavior
for users who already have a ~/.subversion directory.

I know that directory applies to the config (~/.subversion/config once
it's been copied) file, not sure about servers. You can prevent the
client from caching credentials in ~/.subversion/config (the
store-auth-creds setting) but you can't stop a user from changing
their own config after the fact.
