Please, do NOT toppost, even if you are replying to yourself :-)

Somehow I missed your first post (NOTE-TO-SELF: too busy?), but, let me try to think now...

So, you want to have your user never to be asked about username/password?
In other words, you want their credentials cached?

What protocol are you using? (HTTP/svn/svn+ssh)
There is always a solution, but it is protocol dependent. And probably (client) OS dependent.
What OS are your clients?
We are talking about the built-in CLI, right? Actually it should not matter.

If there there is only silence, I guess the can is empty, so no worms will get out :-)

When asking on any ML, provide enough information about your environment.

0. Environment description (OS, product version, ...)
1. What you wanted to achieve?
2. What you did?
3. What happened?
4. What was supposed to happen?
