Because one of the target HTTP servers does not support authentication.

Because the target HTTP servers are behind a firewall, and I don't
want to authenticate all users coming in to them, only the ones that
_don't_ come in from the local LAN.  So, I want to set up Delegate
as the gateway between the internet and the LAN based HTTP servers,
so that internet users have to authenticate, but LAN users do not.

Thanks for replying.  I have put some more debug code in http.c and
I think I have found a section where the user name is visible from
the HTTP request.  I'm still working on getting authentication working,
