Agree this is something we should test.
I think a basic level of support may be working, 
if the username:password are including in a URI as described here: http://www.mongodb.org/display/DOCS/Connections

The configuration change to pulp would be to update 'seeds' under [database].
That string is passed into the pymongo connection, so username/password settings should be obeyed.
