   Remember that unline telnet, ftp, or rlogin, which send it only once 
   per session, this password is sent with *every* HTTP request.  

Coming from MIT, where the packet sniffer has joined the cockroach in
the environmental niche of "endemic vermin", I'm afraid I don't see
this as terribly significant; they only *need* you to send it once.
