I think the best thing you could do is to create a new JIRA issue requesting this new functionality.

Thanks for the response... I don't know why it seems to work today, just
as you said... Eclipse popped up a window... (Ganymede J2EE bundle)
I'm not exactly sure what I did different, other than restarting

One thing that is not very nice... When you start Eclipse, while the
splash screen is still loading. an error message window pop ups up,
titled "Bad IvySetting found".  The message says that the server
responded with a 401 error.  If you go into the project and right click
on the "ivy.xml" file and click refresh or resolve, Eclipse will pop up
a window to enter your user id and password.

I wish that I could enter the user id and password on the Ivy
preferences screen, letting Eclipse manage the password... not being
required to manually enter them, and possibly avoiding the "error"
window on start up.

Thanks again. Phil

Just an FYI, the ant task is a little less magical.... there is no pop
up window from ant.

    <target name="z" depends="init.ivy" description="--> retreive
dependencies with ivy">
        <ivy:settings url="https://host/svn/ivy-repo/ivysettings.xml">
            <credentials host="host" realm="realm" username="user"
passwd="passwd" />
        <ivy:retrieve file="ivy.xml"  />
