HttpFileSystemConfigBuilder needs option for preemptive authentication
----------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: VFS-316
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VFS-316
             Project: Commons VFS
          Issue Type: Bug
         Environment: IIS WebDAV
            Reporter: David Hausladen
             Fix For: 2.0


I find that the credential challenges produced by the WebdavFileSystem as it uses the HttpClient
creates a great deal of superfluous HTTP traffic just to perform BASIC authentication.  In
some scenarios, dumbed-down preemptive authentication is needed for swifter traversals of
the repository.

I suggest adding preemptive authentication to HttpFileSystemConfigBuilder and HttpClientFactory
to address this problem.
