Since nobody has answered this, I will take a stab at it from memory.

My suspicion: if there was Basic Auth, then there will be a User
value. Without auth, I don't think you will get any user value.
It could be from a special URL format, like this:

The User value is encoded in the Authorization header.

If I am right, this is not specific to Dancer.
