I think that the ability to prompt for a certificate/password pair, or
at least for a password for a given 'ssl-client-cert-file' config entry,
is a very important feature. For obvious security reasons, adding
'ssl-client-cert-password' to the SVN 'servers' configuration file is a
Bad Thing(TM). Unfortunately, this seems to be the only way to achieve
access based on client certificates right now.

I'm glad that Alexander considers it possible to improve JavaSVN in this
regard, and I hope a TMate Software crew member will feel a strong urge
to add a prompting feature in a not-too-distant future. :-)
