That rather feels like a hack. "Hey, Subversion, please use the
following editor to prompt me: HAHA! Just kidding! I've got no
editor, sucker!"

Passing --non-interactive will have the affect that, if Subversion
needs to prompt for auth, it won't and will instead just fail
(regardless of what editor you've told it to use or not use). And if
Subversion doesn't need to prompt for auth, ... well, then you didn't
need to pass --non-interactive, did you? :-)
