I thought about it some more, and found that I cannot really justify my
position on this, so I hereby drop my objection.  It's obviously not
useful for packages that will be included in Guix itself, which is our
primary focus, but I suppose it could be useful for private package

What do you think, David?  It seems to me that password tokens in URLs
raise possible security risks, whereas public-key authentication is
generally better practice.
