I guess you'll get the answer that client authentication
is deeply wired into coda, with tokens passed back and forth etc.

So, there might be other options for you:

1) have a cronjob, that echo's the plaintext password
   into clog, do the same in the venus startup scripts.
   (If you want to use one global user).

   Or stick the same password to each user and 
   do the echo | clog from the .bashrc

   You would have no security what so ever.

2) You might also patch coda to set expiry 
   to some ridiculously high value.

3) You could check pam_coda or such, 
   which does coda authentification
   at the same time the user logs 
   into the machine.
