Does remote_file support username/password being spec’d in the URL a la
"ftp://user:password@host/dir" ?

I don’t recall, try it and see!

I seem to remember some http basic auth cookiejar shit. At worst you can
monkey in a remote file provider that supports it or petition opscode for
the fix.

Looks like I’ve got a more basic issue that FTP isn’t supported. Just adding
a wget call to my script resource for now.
