Hi,

Attached is a patch for Ant that will check for any userinfo in the URL supplied to the http condition.
If available, then this will be used as the Basic-Auth header when making the request.
This allows http requests to be made to services that are protected by basic-auth.
e.g. http://username:password@localhost:6060/foo/ready.json


I have tested this manually, however could not see a good reliable way to unit test this.
If no userinfo element is suppliued in the URL, then the connection behaves the same as before.

Cheers,
Nick
