      -> uri(the_uri)

      is it possible to access "username" and "pw" inside the body of
      function()? This is running on Linux/Apache, using .htaccess file
      for authentication. Thanks for any help.

        Most web servers will provide the authenticated username as part of the
        environment variables created for a CGI script. (This includes CGI scripts
        handling SOAP requests, of course.) You cannot get the password directly,
        although since the username has been validated you shouldn't generally need
        it.
