Curl seems to have a option for this - CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD, settable
with curl_easy_setopt(3). AFAICS, it can't be set as an environment
variable, so you would have to extend darcs. 

The other solution is to set up another middle proxy, that would connect
to the first with user/password, but would let you in without password.

    darcs   ---> new proxy   ---->     old proxy
               (knows user/pass)    (requires user/pass)

Unfortunately, I don't know which proxy implementation is able to do
that, but I think that Squid is a good guess.

Best regards,
