As I understand it, authentication is safe (it uses a challenge/response
handshake so that the password is never sent across the network).

If you don't use SSH, though, then the contents of the versioned files
will be sent in plaintext. If you're running a public-read server, this
shouldn't be too much of an issue, but if you're running something more
private then you probably should go with SSH.
