I'm actually not quite sure what the proper behaviour is. I think the current
behaviour is what will work with more HTTP proxies. The http proxy would
otherwise need to get the name + password from the HTTP header and smash it
into its FTP engine. As it is now, it has all the info in the FTP URL.
The whole FTP-over-HTTP-proxy operation is a bit of a weird thing, and I
don't think it is documented/standardized anywhere.
What's the problem with putting the name+password in the URL?
