Well, why don't you make it smarter? Poke around in
version.tcl for the sn_rcs_exec command. You
are going to have to do something like
sn_exec_x_events from utilities.tcl, the
catch is you will need to read some output
like event_exec_x_events_proc and figure
out if the output is a password prompt.
Then you would need to bring up a password
dialog and have the user type a password.
Post a patch to the list when you have
it working.

Have Fun
