Well, the list of categories can be obtained through $(tla abrowse
--categories), but that doesn't help you very much in doing a 'get' on the
new branches.  You could get all versions by $(tla abrowse --versions | grep
'--.*--') -- I think there's a way to do that in one tla command, but can't
find it at the moment.  You could just have directories for each version,
and run through all directories and update or star-merge, and if it isn't
already there, do a get.  Ain't shell scripting lurverley?

As for avoiding lots of password typing, you've got several options --
ssh-agent, public keys, or the SSH 3.9 "sub-tunnels" stuff.  I'd look at PKI
first, then sub-tunnels, then ssh-agent, but that's just my personal
preference.  Any of them will do what you want to do.
