Attached is a Q&D patch that requires users who wish to authenticate
using AUTHINFO to use an SSLified connection to do so. 

A possible futher enhancement would be an option in inn.conf/readers.conf
to turn it off by default, and options in readers.conf to turn it on/off 
on a per sitebasis.

Tested with the following:

    Server:

	- inn-2.3.1 on FreeBSD 4.2

    Clients:

	- netscape 4

	    o authinfo over SSL worked properly
	    o authinfo without SSL popped up the appropriate
	      error message

	- telnet

	    o authinfo through an SSL stunnel worked properly
	    o authinfo failed properly over plain telnet with both
		
		- authinfo user foo
		- authinfo simple user pass

	- other

	    o trn without ssl or authinfo works normally
