I stand corrected, you're right it does work properly in spite of the pager. I
just tried svn blame with the automatic pager functionality enabled and using
less against a server that required authentication (and with --config-dir
/var/empty to force prompting). It worked perfectly.

I still think --non-interactive is not a replacement for --no-pager since in
the same example if I use --non-interactive my command doesn't run (errors out
on authenticatoin).
