With afpfs-ng, which I mentioned the other day, the user does need to supply a PW, so we 
prompt the user for it and pass it as a parameter to afp_client.  (Full disclosure: we 
haven't implemented afpfs-ng yet, just started working with it, but are shooting for 
putting it into production in the fall.)  Looking at wdfs's options, it looks like you 
can do something like

-o username=$id -o password=$pw

when you call wdfs.
