Because most users will look at the 'config' file first, I guess.
Also, there, it's right next to 'store-passwords'.

The docstrings reference each other, so I think it's sorta OK...

The other idea I had was to have the option be valid in both
the config file and the servers file [global] section, and
have svn print a warning when the two disagree and fall back
to 'prompt'. But I discarded that as overkill.
