The commit just made re-engineers the new API to generalize it.  Now we can fully support the "MAY preemptively send" part of the rfc, even when doing the normal 401 dance for the first request.  This is accomplished through a new password manager instead of a new Handler, and by adding support in the AbstractBasicAuthHandler for detecting if the passed in password manager supports authentication tracking and using it if it does.  This means that the proxy handler can also now do prior auth.

If anyone on this issue thinks we screwed this up, please let me know :)
