I am curious, if this is key-based authorization, why does it prompt  
for a password? Is this the pass phrase used to decrypt the locally  
stored private key? If so, a workaround would likely be to not have  
your private key encrypted -- for machines where you are the (only)  
system administrator, this should be safe.

The actions in the Subversion bundle are all calling the svn  
executable and parsing the output. The commands would need to parse  
the request for the password, use something like CocoaDialog to  
prompt the user, and then give that back to svn.

While I imagine such thing would be fragile, it should be possible.
