OK, I can concede that "nobody" was at least a slight overstatement
here. :-)

But the thread has drifted far away from it's origin. The issue is
whether Subversion should cache passwords by default or not. I still

but I'm also beginning to realize, much to my surprise, that I'm pretty
alone with that opinion.
