Using 2-Step Verification with Google App Engine?

I am using Google's new 2-step verification process for account authentication. Eclipse requires that I sign in with my Google username and password every time I deploy a web site from my computer to Google's servers. Since I am using 2-step verification and Eclipse doesn't store passwords, it looks like I need to generate a new application-specific password every time I want to deploy.

Update 5/4/2011

The Google App Engine deployment process now requires you to enter your Google Authenticator pass code once every 30 days and, thus, Google has solved the problem raised by this blog post.

  1. Instead of generating passwords everytime, I simply saved the first password I created in a text file so I can just re-use it.
