I've not seen Greg's auth code, but I'm working on breaking out the digest
auth code into a separate module. There's a bunch of non-HTTP protocols
that can use digest auth (IMAP and SIP, to name two) so it makes sense.
Is there a thorough and exhaustive list of the various magic variants that
need to be supported by this code?
