xmlrpclib does not understand the uid:password@url syntax. This is not
how you do authentication with xmlrpclib, you need to subclass and create
your own transport. The new xmlrpclib should come with a transport that
supports Basic authentication. See the xmlrpclib sources or the xmlrpclib
mailing list for more info.
