None of this is in the control of Subclipse. The information you provide
to Subclipse is just passed along to JavaHL which is in charge of the
rest. In theory, it should work the same as the CLI since they use the
same code. In this case, I doubt that JavaHL takes your username and
password and rewrites the URL for you.

I thought most people that use ssh use a key-agent like pageant to manage
their passwords and certificates for them. Perhaps that is why it does
not come up?
