Review request for kdelibs.


Patch updated:
As talked about on IRC this one needs no further attributes and just sets the password stored inside the request url empty if using it once failed.


Currently it's not possible to supply http credentials using the request URL (like I couldn't find any other possibility to "infuse" the credentials without user interaction (which is nice to have in some cases, eg. when doing rpc-over-http).

This patch is currently more a proof of concept. I'm not sure:
- if the credentials should be cached in KPasswdServer if authentication succeeds
- if this is the right way at all. Insights very welcome.

Diffs (updated)

  /trunk/KDE/kdelibs/kioslave/http/http.cpp 1000119 


Testing (updated)

Manual tests using kioclient and konqueror indicate it works as (I) expected.
