Unfortunately, it's not possible right now to use any of the prompting
callbacks for auth. You'll need to populate your
~/.subversion/servers file with passwords and such, or get your
authstuffs cached by just using Subversion to commit something against
your repository.

Here's a class in a script I've been developing. You might have to
tweak it a bit, but the general knowledge you need will be there.

class RemoteHistoryParser(HistoryParser):
  Implementation of the HistoryParser class for doing history
  calculations across RA layers (client-side).
  def __init__(self, repos_url):
    # Init the client app.

    # Create our top-level pool.
    pool = core.svn_pool_create(None)

    # Ensure the we have a configuration area.
    core.svn_config_ensure(None, pool)

    # Setup the client context baton, complete with non-prompting authstuffs.
    ctx = client.svn_client_ctx_t()
    provs = []
    ctx.auth_baton = core.svn_auth_open(provs, pool)
    ctx.config = core.svn_config_get_config(None, pool)

    # Start populating our members.
    self.pool = pool
    self.repos_url = repos_url
    self.ctx = ctx
  def _rev2optrev(self, rev):
    # Turn a revision argument into an svn_opt_revision_t object.
    rt = core.svn_opt_revision_t()
    if rev is not None:
      if str(rev) == 'HEAD':
        rt.kind = core.svn_opt_revision_head
        rt.kind = core.svn_opt_revision_number
        rt.value.number = int(rev)
      rt.kind = core.svn_opt_revision_unspecified
    return rt

  def fetchHistory(self, start, end, history_cb):
    # Run svn_client_log(START, END) using HISTORY_CB as the callback.
                          1, 0, history_cb, self.ctx, self.pool)
