Great! Now for the feature request. Since Eclipse allows me to input the
username/password information, should there be some symmetry in having it
do some level of purging.

I realize (from the FAQ) that there is no current API for this, but for an
end user they don't care how much work needs to be done under the covers by
the Subclipse developers, they just want to reset the password.

Thanks for the pointer, I missed that entry in the FAQ last time I read it.
