That's very strange - it doesn't require login in Firefox on my (Windows) box, either!

Yes, it does use ocurl. The proof-of-concept in this case was part of downloading the Cygwin repository (see https://github.com/dra27/opam-experiments/blob/master/cygwin-repository/CygRepository.ml#L355-L542).
There were various issues, but you merged my pull request for dealing with them: https://github.com/ygrek/ocurl/pull/8
I expect there will be a few more (minor) issues when I build it using the Microsoft C Compiler (I only did this experiment using mingw), but I'll submit that back to you as-and-when.
