Good suggestions.  Wording like this was considered, but the use case
for this dialog suggested that this isn't for just browsing a
repository.  Instead this dialog is used to setup a file store on
another system.  New wording along that line would be nice ;-) For
simply browsing one would more likely click off a uri handler
( and nautilus would browse that with the
key-ring manager handling password issues.
