Description Bastien Nocera 2006-06-06 12:14:34 EDT

In the anaconda logs, you might see:
* reverse name lookup worked
* ks location: ftp://ftpuser:redhat@
* transferring ftp://ftpuser:redhat@ to a fd
* failed to retrieve http://ftpuser:redhat@

The attached patch adds support for parsing login and password from the URI
itself. I also attached a test program to see whether there were any regressions
in the parsing.

I'm afraid my patch uses the same lax memory management as the original code
(host and path are never freed).
