Yeah, looks like it is just about the deprecated userinfo at host style.  I 
can issue the following request

r = new OpenLayers.Request.GET({user: "me", password: "secret"})

and see

GET http://me:secret@localhost/path

I'll remove that example (8), but I think it makes sense to keep the 
config properties around (since they are part of XMLHttpRequest).
