The fix for issue #1666 breaks with urls that include a username and password. Here's an illustration of how it breaks:

$ easy_install -i example
Searching for example
Download error on nonnumeric port: '' -- Some packages may not be found!

Was this intentional @jaraco? I got the general sense that some support was maybe being dropped in those original PRs, but I don't think it was marked as a breaking change, right?

In any case, @tjarls, does this happen only when you invoke via easy_install? Can you solve your issue by using pip directly? This entire pathway is deprecated and is largely being maintained to "best effort" standards. I think it's definitely a bug if it's breaking backwards compatibility, but it would be good to get a sense of where to prioritize it.
