Feed block needs to grab xml with username in url

I setup a feed block to get some xml and bring it into the cms. I plan to parse the xml and use the imported page much like a db (and have done this lots already). The only thing that is different about this feed is that it has a username in the url. Cascade throws an error (Could not parse feed location) with this and won't publish... is there anyway around this to force cascade to attempt to publish it? The url works fine outside of the cms. Here's an example of how it's formed:
https://username:[email blocked]/feed.xml

    Could you tell us what system you're grabbing the feed from? Typically, Cascade will not be able to negotiate any kind of authentication on the feed server so you may have to try to generate a URL with a security token in it, if possible.

    According to the Wufoo documentation, to read RSS feeds from Wufoo, the reader must support:

    1. https - which Cascade does, and
    2. credentials - which Cascade does not

    Unless there is another way to pass a security token to the feed URL, I'm afraid you will not be able to read these feeds into Cascade.
