Yes, I have already received objections on that front :-(. I had that in mind 
too ... but there are a couple of limitations:
- Requiring either gnome keyring or kde wallet support. Though I mildly prefer 
the but it is hard to use from C# as their C# bindings are incomplete.
- I can avoid by asking the password directly but to get input from the user I 
need to show a dialog box - the daemon should not require X to run

If I add this feature to svn, then I will probably make it a separate dll and 
a separate conf file; distributions can package it separately.
