Oh, that's not what I thought you were asking.  I thought you were asking
how to avoid putting up the password dialogue in the first place.

What you want is possible, but not without modifying the code.  You'd have
to modify the module to return some bogus auth failed code, and detect
that later in the die() routine, and print a different error message and
fix the status to be a valid auth failed code.
