My part in refactoring of the auth API is now pretty much concluded.
AuthScheme javadocs should have enough details about the design to get
you started. The new APIs look good enough to work well for standard
Basic and Digest schemes. I also managed to get rid of a lot of ugly
stuff in the process.

It is all yours now.

I'll be around to help whichever way possible. However, from here on I
intend to be less involved in HttpClient development. It is time new
folks took it over.
