Bug Description

  affects bzr

AuthenticationConfig.get_password() returns a unicode string when
retrieving a password from authentication.conf, and a plain string when
prompting the user. It would be nice if it could consistently return an
object of either of these types.

It must be Unicode and respect user input encoding even.

Changing this to High since it makes authenticated svn servers impossible to use (see bug 894695) unless the user encodes their username and password into the SVN URL on the command-line, which is NOT a good practice.
