Prompting for client certificate and/or password; FAQ seems a bit unclear

I set up SVN 1.2.3 with Apache 2.2.0 and configured a repository for
access with client certificates. Then, I added

  ssl-client-cert-file = cert.p12
  ssl-client-cert-password = secret

to my SVN 'servers' file. With this configuration, Eclipse 3.1.1 with
Subclipse 0.9.37 (on Windows XP) can access the repository.

Unfortunately, if I remove 'ssl-client-cert-password' from the config,
the repository can no longer be accessed, because Subclipse fails to
prompt for a password.

As far as I can see, <http://subclipse.tigris.org/faq.html#http-ssl>
states that JavaHL has not currently implemented prompting for a
certificate file, but does not mention if prompting for the password
is available (I assume it is not). I could not find any obvious
answers in the mailing list archive either, so I need to ask here:

1) Can Subclipse be configured to prompt for a certificate file
   and a password?

2) Can Subclipse be configured to prompt for a password if the
   parameter 'ssl-client-cert-file' is set in 'servers'?

Your help is appreciated.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Sincerely
