   Only slightly. :-)

   realstring, at least in the current implementation, is something
like (from memory):

  <http://svnserver.example.com:8000/repository> Joe's Subversion
Repository

   And for an "Internet Password", I'd like to have a way to break it
down. The keys for an Internet Password would be something like:

  protocol: http
  host: svnserver.example.com:8000
  path: repository
  domain: Joe's Subversion Repository

   This isn't a huge deal, but sharing creds with Safari would be nice.
