remote_user and remote_password for custom http authentication?

I hope everyone is having a nice weekend.

Can anyone out there tell me whether it would be possible to access
the remote user name and password ($user and $password in
http://$user:$ so that I can roll my own basic
HTTP authentication?

It seems to me that remote_user is only available when the Auth Basic
module is enabled, but am I missing something?
