Hmmmm.  This is a tricky problem, since part of the reason for the
current progress-reporting design is to because people were
complaining that darcs was silent when ssh was very slow to
connect, so in that regard this is a regression.  But I agree that
this is probably the best approach for now, until we can figure out
how to distinguish between interactive and non-interactive exec

Although actually, it looks like the 1104 fix doesn't cover the case
where we connect via darcs transfer-mode, which is probably the first
time that users will be prompted for their password.  I think I'll
hack up a little fix for that case.
