Description

It is not possible to access a secured feed. For example gmail rss feed.
The usual scheme: http://userid:password@url does not work. Plus having the password in clear text is a security risk.

Posible solution

add an authentication screen - i.e. userid and password
encrypt the password before storing it in the db
rewrite the feed to http://userid:password@url before issuing the call - but don't display it on the screen
use curl? to issue the request

Better:

add authentication support for oath/auth_sub
