MetaSearch leverages OWSLib for CSW request/response handling which results in also using OWSLib's HTTP request/response handling.

Using QGIS' QgsNetworkAccessManager provides numerous benefits (HTTP auth, proxy, etc.) in accessing the network in a uniform way via QGIS.

Update MetaSearch to implement QgsNetworkAccessManager. This will likely require changes to OWSLib as an initial step to abstract HTTP handling.
