Or in my case svncpp and pysvn, I'm working on the python svn GUI Workbench
rather then rapidsvn.

See issue #153 it has the full text of the patch, including the fix.

The may_save should default the check box to save/don't save as the users
preference. Why would I force the user to edit an icky text file before
the GUI allows them to save credientials?

The alternative design to the may_save flag is an API to query the svn
preferences. Is there such an API? I have not looked.
