The various authentication methods should be tested against servlets in 
the Test-Webapp. As to proxies, we must implement a couple of tiny local 
servers running on different ports. Like:

TCP 81: Proxy
TCP 82: SSL Proxy

Those servers should be started and stopped by the test fixtures (setup 
/ teardown). The servers must be configurable as to which authentication 
method they use. This will also ensure quality of the various 
authentication methods, as currently their test cases are somewhat 
minimalistic. I'd love to hack up some code for the server side this week.
