Hi,

I want to create a resource that simply prints the name of the auth-user
if it is behind a genericAuthFilter.

Ideally I would like a method like access to the complete AuthUser for the
current request.

I have looked through the documentation and found no elegant way to do
that other than uudecode the authorization mime header.  I have to assume
that someone has already implemented a better solution.
