The svn_auth_ssl_server_trust_prompt_func_t function must return an
svn_auth_cred_ssl_server_trust_t structure, which has a member
accepted_failures; set that to the value of the incoming failures
parameter and may_save to FALSE and you're done. See
svn_cmdline_auth_ssl_server_trust_prompt() in

This is all documented in the headers, see include/svn_auth.h.

You've already been told that changing a public API is not acceptable.
