Re: [PATCH] Change default "store-passwords" policy to "no"

From: Ben Collins-Sussman <sussman_at_red-bean.com>

My preference is that after successful authentication, the default
behavior is to *ask* the user whether to cache the password on disk.
(And the prompt should make it clear whether the cache will be
encrypted or not.) This is what web browsers do, and that's a UI
that everyone is familiar and comfortable with.

(It sort of matches the way we prompt about accepting new SSL
certificates: never, for this session only, or permanently.)
