netrc library now gets some problems:

1. All tokens are mandatory. (#28780)
2. Token values are limited to a limited set of characters. (#557704)
3. Does not complain about macro definition without a null line.
4. If the login name is anonymous, security check is not needed.

Propose a patch to handle these. I treat it as an enhancement of the existing library instead of bug fix.
