Feature #3848: Using http basic authentication for FTP with Open URI

Hi,

I needed to download a file from a FTP server, with OpenURI and I've foun=
d that it is not possible to do it with authentication.

There is an option in the OpenURI open method to use a username/password =
but it is not used in FTP connection, the username/password for FTP is al=
ways set to anonymous/_nil_.

I've written  avery basic patch to use the option.
Is it something that can be included in future releases of Ruby ? Is ther=
e a "clean" way to patch OpenURI in the meantime ?

Thanks.
