wget does so I'd imagine you could persuade it to unless the
custom wget tlmgr uses doesn't allow this. But you'd likely have to
edit the configuration file at
/usr/local/texlive/2008/tlpkg/installer/wgetrc and that would certainly
have security implications as any user can read it. Also, I don't think
wget can handle the credentials securely though I'm not certain about
this.
