I don't see how that many #ifdef's would be added. You'd plop in a new
provider file that is only built on Win32 and add an #ifdef pushing that
provider to the auth stack to subversion/clients/cmdline/main.c.

I don't think it's going to be possible to find a generic solution that can be
used on all other platforms. However, if we start to spawn 10 different
crypto-based auth providers, we could then think about ways to abstract it out
later on. However, it just seems too early for abstraction. -- justin
