Patch: Allow Mercurial (hg) scmtools back end to utilize repository credentials when accessing HTTP/HTTPS paths
Review Request #448 — Created July 10, 2008 and submitted
A relatively simple change that seems to work ... that said, I don't really know Python at all, so it's rather likely that there's something "not quite right" here.
Tested on Debian and Windows, Python 2.5.2. It also seems to work alright with unauthenticated remote servers, though that has only been tested lightly.
