For a while now, when I try to use http for sysinstall, I run into
some annoying bugs.

For example:
I say my sets are at

I say my host is
my base dir is ~msporleder
and my sets dir is /sets

I blank out the user/password (defaults to ftp)
and my url ends up as: http://%20@

I understand the control characters, but why do they show up at all?
Also, why is sysinstall translated them?  ftp from the command line
works with the real url (symbols and all)

Also, why is the (outdated) user@psasword url structure forced?
