I have been wondering for a while if it might be possible to tewak the
agent functionality a bit:

* It seems the cvsagent password popup is never focused when it comes
up (though it always is on top). I always have to Alt-Tab to it or use
the mouse. Could this be changed?

* For :pserver: connections that use a blank password (e.g. anonymous
access to SF.net repositories) the cvsagent dialog keeps popping up
even if I have already performed a Login.

* For :ssh: connections I currently prefer to continue using key pair
authentication with Pageant. Yet the cvsagent window always pops up
first and I have to cancel it in order to let CVS use the keys from
pageant instead.

It seems the latter two issues might be solved by changing the logic to
only use cvsagent when all other alternatives of getting at
authentication info have been exhausted or am I missing something
obvious here?
