Better than Daniel's recent suggestion, IMHO is the useNoSSLForPackages

On that note, there's no good reason for packages to be downloaded via
SSL, since they're all GPG signed anyway.  Can we have
useNoSSLForPackages=1 made the default in the next version of RHL?

Well except that you're passing authentication data in the clear.
