    Why use a setter here instead of following the plugin pattern of allowing all plugins
to handle the callback?

> If you load some resource which requires authentication using android default browser
default login dialog appears, but if you try to load the same resource using cordova app then
no dialog is shown for user and request is failed w/ 401 Unauthorized. So Currently apps have
to provide own JS logic to show web based auth dialog.
> It will be great if Cordova Android offers special functionality (in core or via special
interface plugin developers can extend) to automatically show native auth dialog. This is
extremely useful in corpnet scenarios where all resources requires user to be authenticated.
