Re: Adding user@ to HTTP[S] URIs

noting, i have used https://family.redbarn.org/~vixie/ as a base URL for 
private document sharing for many years now. apache has always supported it, 
as well as nginx, and the original web server that apache was a patch set for. 
i think the industry would benefit from standardizing that rather than 
creating something new like https://vixie@family.redbarn.org/ -- is there a 
problem being solved here that's different from making this functionality 
reliable across vendors?
