Add another one to the list:

    #10: svn_client_get_ssl_client_cert_prompt_provider and
         do not have a retry limit.
    IMPACT OF PROBLEM: Clients implemnting SSL certificate
         support will only be able to give end users one chance
         at providing the proper file for the cert and the pass
         for that certificate. It seems almost certain that
         people are going to want this fixed. To do it would
         require a change in the API.
    DIFFICULTY OF FIX: Medium, there may be complications
         of trying to fix this that I'm not aware of. But
         given that simple_prompt already supports retries
         I'd image it would be straightforward unless neon
         presents a roadblock on this.

I mentioned this in the past but nobody replied to it.
