Hi Devs (moving this to dev list),

I tested the geojson url of Phil, and if I provide username and password 
IN the url like below it works:


But without the username/password in the url, QGIS does not provide any 
authentication dialogs or so.

Is the api missing a header which QGIS needs to know there is 
authentication on it?

Or how is QGIS triggered to show authentication dialogs when provided 
basic authentication on a 'protocol'-vector layer?
