RFE: Make Credentials Serializable

                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-916
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-916
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: HttpClient
    Affects Versions: 4.0.1
            Reporter: Daniel Gredler
            Priority: Minor

I've been working on upgrading the HtmlUnit library to use HttpClient 4, and I've realized
that we could eliminate some hackish internal code if Credentials instances were Serializable.
I don't really see a downside, and this would be a huge convenience for us.

The change would involve making the org.apache.http.auth.Credentials interface extend Serializable,
and having org.apache.http.auth.BasicUserPrincipal and org.apache.http.auth.NTUserPrincipal
implement Serializable (plus serialVersionUIDs where appropriate, I guess).
