It's also common to use /dev/tty for password prompts, in case input has
been redirected (ssh does it, for instance, which is why you can use ssh
with password authentication as an ra_svn tunnel agent). Perhaps we
should do that, and send the echoed newline there as well.

(That's Unix-specific, of course.)
