[Distutils] [issue121] SVN credentials can't be provided to easy_install

If you do "svn co 
svn://user:secret@svn.example.com/repo/trunk/my-egg", does that work, 
or does it prompt you for the password?

My guess is that svn itself is the problem here, because easy_install 
does not remove password information from the URL, it just passes the 
URL as-is to the "svn" command.
