Follow-up Comment #1:

Ok, so this is not a bug. If anything, this is a feature request.

But to me, neither HTTP basic nor digest authentication are actually required.
Web authentication nowadays is done via posting username + password and then a
session is created. The client authenticates further requests by including
that session handle (as an URL parameter or as a cookie in the http request).

Given that, I don't really want to support the HTTP authentication mechanisms.
