I'm afraid I have to. It is possible to globally disable saving of
authentication credentials by setting store-auth-creds to "no" in the
config file. The command line client also has an option --no-auth-cache
which does the same thing. The may_save that is passed to the prompt
function is set to FALSE if any of these options are used.
