In the case of libsvn_auth, the runtime data that a certain provider
needs isn't always available at registration time.

Sometimes it is: consider --username or --password.

Sometimes it's not: we don't know which wc/access-baton to search for
cached creds in, at least not until we're in the middle of
svn_client__open_ra_session. Or consider that a certs provider needs
a 'realm' -- which only comes when server sends the challenge.
