Add SPNEGO support to Avro HTTP transport
-----------------------------------------

                 Key: AVRO-651
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-651
             Project: Avro
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: java
            Reporter: Carl Steinbach


[SPNEGO|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SPNEGO] is the standard mechanism for Kerberos authentication
over HTTP. 

Avro should give users the option of using an Avro HTTP client or server that is capable of
authentication using SPNEGO/Kerberos. This will be useful for Hadoop which has chosen Kerberos
as its standard authentication protocol, as well as people who need to use Kerberos authentication
with Avro based services running in servlet containers like Tomcat.
