[TSVN] Feature Request: "Ask for Authentication Credentials" Checkbox in Commit Dialog

From: Nathan Kidd <nathan-svn_at_spicycrypto.ca>

Request:

Add a checkbox to the Commit dialog
"Ask for Authentication Credentials"

When checked, the commit dialog would pop up the "Authentication" dialog
regardless of whether saved authentication data exists for this repo or not.

Rationale:

1) developer A working with developer B at developer B's desk. Changes
are really from developer A, and should be committed as such, but
developer B's auth data is already saved. They are forced to either
clear the auth cache in tsvn settings (annoying for developer B
afterward) or temporarily rename the saved auth file for this repo UUID
(also annoying and time consuming).

2) a "build" user normally checks out/updates code on build machine, but
regularly we find ourselves debugging or tweaking build issues on the
build machine and then needing to commit. Using --no-auth-cache in all
scripts doesn't help because we frequently need to see file history and
don't want to enter auth creds every time Show Log loads. Even if we
used consistent --no-auth-cache (in cmd line client) and
'store-auth-creds = no' in the config file, javahl seems to ignore
store-auth-creds anyway.

3) machine is occasionally used by two people via terminal services

Attached is a screenshot of how it might look.

Opinions?

Thanks for this excellent tool.
