What portion of code causes the authorization screen to be displayed on
the client asking for username & password?  (I am assuming that this
is supported by HTTP). I have had a hard time tracking this down.

In addition, is there a more general mechanism available to request
from the user, _after_ the request is made but _prior_ to sending the
reply?  E.g. the
user asks for document foo.html & the server responds first with "what's
your favorite
color?"  Selecting "blue" from a list results a reply containing the
document foo.html
whose text is now blue. ...it's the mechanism that's important here,
this is just an
illustrative example!

Thank you,
