If I'm writing the code, netrc aint gonna happen. Sorry, I'm having a
tough enough time getting the bits I need working, and too little time
to do it in. ;-)
Russ, Ville, you guys are welcome to have a look at the code when I've
gotten the bits I need working, and do with it what you will. FTP auth
handling per Seth's request is reasonable, and not all that difficult to
implement (same source of configuration data as the HTTP auth info--I've
got that bit finished, so no extra work). Of course, Seth is the
arbiter of Ultimate Yum Truth.
