Not really. Flood considers 401 response as error and ignores WWW-Authenticate
header. You have to know which urls are protected, and access them like

<url user="foo" password="bar">http://www.example/com/protected</url>

The presence of user and password attributes triggers creation of
Authorization header (Basic).
