urllib2 broke out the http auth information into some more named args.
urllib is what was used in 1.0 - and it didn't do that
ftp url's with user/pass will still work in 1.97
won't work under urllib2
I have plans to hack urlgrabber to add auth support that is consistent
for http and ftp.
so each repo would then have
in the repository stanza.
but I haven't had time b/c I've been busy with everything else :)
please file an rfe/bugreport in bugzilla for this one so I'll remember.
