Could always support both during a long term transition.  New mirrors /
mirrors that want it get user/pass, old mirrors can continue to use IP
based ACLs.  Just my thoughts though, and it's always a pain when a
mirror has to change IPs to have to update that, if they each had a
user/pass changing IPs doesn't matter.  Also easier to code since rsync
allows user/pass combinations to live in a separate file than the rsync
