up2date doesn't support password-protected yum sources

Description of problem:
up2date in RHEL 4 supports yum repositories (great!), but not when they are password-protected, though yum itself does (oh no!).
urllib2 supports protected directories, and it just takes a few extra lines to set it up. yum itself use urllib2, so the code could easily be borrowed.
Anyway, it would be very nice if one could use password-protected yum repositories with up2date just as with yum. As-is, we have to install yum alongside up2date (and lose the ability to resolve dependencies automatically, since yum doesn't have access to the RHEL repository).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup a yum source that includes a user:pass like so:
2. Run up2date -i some-package
Actual Results: An invalid port error. Specifically:
