Please, is it possible to pass an username and a password to source() to access code stored in restricted access web server?

I know I can use commands like...

> source("http://mire.environmentalchange.net/~webmaster/R/3Dsurface.r")

but I am not able to find if it is possible to pass authorization parameters together with the link.

Thanks you for your help,

Ricardo
