I didn't realize neon already understood certificate challenges -- I
thought we were blocking on that feature!

So the *real* challenge of this issue is coming up with a nice way to
store and manage certificates. I suspect that stashing certs in every
single .svn/auth/ area (as we do with 'username' and 'password' files)
isn't going to fly very well. Maybe a subdir within ~/.subversion/
needs to hold them.

But now I fear we're jumping the gun yet again; gstein had/has plans
to write libsvn_auth, which would be a big reorganization of how the
client manages credentials in general. Maybe that library should
happen first?
