[Moin-user] Removal of ability to use GivenAuth, formerly HTTPAuth, via passed Authorization header

I have just discovered that Moin 1.9 drops the ability to pass an
authenticated identity to the Moin standalone server using an HTTP Basic
auth Authorization header.

An example whole-system scenario where this is useful is a front-end
Apache performing HTTP Basic auth, and proxying the resultant request to
a standalone-server Moin running bound to the localhost IP address only.

Please could this feature be reinstated?
