It is not clear from the description or the patch what it has to do with 
revsets. Reading the bug makes it more clear. I would file it under 
"http" or "url" instead of "revsets". Revsets is just one of the ways to 
show this "issue".

What to the prompt look like with this patch? An example would be 
helpful (especially when there is no test).

Could you add some test coverage of this? It is almost covered by 
test-http.t. Forcing it to interactive mode could probably make it reach 
the line you are touching.

This message should get the same treatment.

It should probably also use util.hidepassword ... just in case.

urllib.splitquery is not documented on 
http://docs.python.org/2/library/urllib.html and the docstring do not 
say much on how it works on urls. Based on experience with other things 
realted to url/http, I wonder if the function is available and stable in 
all relevant Python versions.
