I am very tempted by that, too. In the meantime (and even once that curl
version comes out and we write the new code, people will still be on the
older version of curl), we have a fallback: they can use http.proxy if
they want auth support. It's not as nice as supporting auth on the
environment variables, but I think it will end up being a lot cleaner.
