How about if we disable the auth storage when SSL is used?

That is, the default behavior is:

  * store user/pass
  * if using SSL, then just store the user
  * config files override the above behavior
  * cmdline switches override the above

btw, note that the password info is always stored in a user-read-only
directory and user-read-only file.
