I did, but it seems the statement regarding the agents was not explicit enough for my first try. Now, when reading it again, it works better. :-)

So the question is whether users of Windows, MacOSX, Gnome Keyring and Kwallet have any usability benefit at all - right now they can already store their "normal" credentials in those storages.

Ok, so GPG-Agent just fulfills the role of the agent I requested.

Yes, this is correct, it mitigates the problem a little. But most complex shell scripts tend to issue several SVN commands, and such will query the user several times if none of the abovementioned agents is available.
So the question boils down to "will we optionally provide our own agent, or will we simply redirect the users to the existing solutions"?
Is pageant / ssh-agent an additional option? (This might require using asymmetric cryptography...)
