I think we should preemptively include credentials in HTTP requests to repositories if the user supplies them. Can anyone think of a reason not to do this? If so, how do we want to support repos that do require preemptive auth?
Given that we have the credentials, I think we should just send them.
We may as well have the discussion on what to do on that ticket.
