I wanted to provide some contexts, I should have done before.
I want to use git svn in some scripts that are launched un-attended. As my SVN 
server requires a password, I need to provide it but it can not be at user 
This is why I wanted to add the password parameter that is available in svn CLI.

I understand the concern regarding the fact that the password can be retrieved 
through ps.
You are right, it would be better to be able to use git-credential or libsvn 
solution for this purpose.
