I'd argue that a 401 verifies that the url actually exists. By the way, the doc defines "does not exist" as "returns 404": http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/validators/#django.core.validators.URLValidator

verify_exists is set to be deprecated in 1.4 and removed in 1.5 related to security and performance issues. As such I'm going to close as wontfix.
