I don't think it makes much of a difference. Intuitively I would guess 
that having it on one line generally makes parsing easier, but since 
passwords can contain all sorts of characters, it might actually be 
better to have it on a separate line as newline is generally not used in 

r.sentinel.download (and others) could then be launched by just giving 
the login and the module then grabs the password from the file. This 
allows using different logins.
