Did you consider just running "git credential" from the filter? It may
not be the perfect solution, but it should work. I already used it to
get credential from a remote-helper (git-remote-mediawiki). When
prompting credentials interactively, it grabs the terminal directly, so
it work even if stdin/stdout are used for the protocol.

Asking the main git process to get the credentials probably has added
value like the ability to prompt once and use the same for several
filter processes.
