Storing proxy passwords when using SvnAnt

Hello !

I am trying to use SvnAnt with its JavaHL bindings. My networks
require the use of a proxy that is authenticated. If I specy my
username and password in C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application
Data\Subversion\servers, my script works without any problem. But
storing a password unencrypted is of course against company policies
... So I am looking for an alternative solution.

I have a test Ant target that I use :

    <target name="test-svn">
        <svn username="${user.name}"
            <update dir="${basedir}" recurse="true" />

This target works if the pasword to the proxy is in the the "servers"
config file. It doesnt otherwise.

I tried to modify this target to explicitely set the proxy :

    <target name="test-svn">
        <setproxy proxyhost="proxy.mynetwork.com"
                  proxyuser="myuser" />
        <svn username="${user.name}"
            <update dir="${basedir}" recurse="true" />

This way, I could prompt the user for its password everytime and not
store it. But of course, this "setproxy" only sets a Java proxy...
doesnt work...

Is there a work around to have svn eaither ask the user for its
password or have it stored in a secured way ?

  Thanks for your help !
