I agree, I wish JavaHL would add it too. I have raised the issue in the
past, I will try to bring it up again. I do not know if it is just an
oversight or something where the prompting happens at a layer they do not
control. For example, JavaHL cannot prompt for SSH information because
they completely rely on the SSH client to do it. This is because they are
thinking of a command line environment, where it does not matter whose code
prompts you. Perhaps the Neon layer of Subversion is what handles this. I
tend to doubt it though.
