I am attempting to communicate with a Web service that expects a user name and password in the URL (e.g., HTTP://username:password@domain.top). I'm supplying user info in the base URL, but it's not being sent that I can see. Further, I see no code in the Casablanca project that would send it. No code other than uri_builder and uri class manipulation calls uri_builder::user_info().

Does Casablanca, in fact, make no use of these data? If so, what can I do to work around this omission?
