Switching user credentials on a Subversion working copy

Hi all,

I've got a question concerning the switching of user credentials
(username and / or password) that successfully authenticated on a
Subversion working copy. Our users are given the possibility to choose
different credentials via a dedicated client UI. The question is if
there's a way to trigger Subversion's authentication callback
mechanism via an API call and tell Subversion to use the new
credentials instead of the old ones? I've tried out lot of stuff, but
apparently didn't find the right way of doing this. The application
does not write the credentials to the local disk (/auth/...). So every
authentication only works through the callback mechanism.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Sincerely,

Goetz
