Hi Ian,

thanks a lot for this proposal which seems to go into the right direction.

I didn't yet have time to look into this in detail, but it currently 
seems to require the UA to still parse the HTML page. Wouldn't it be 
better of the *headers* of the response (such as WW-Authenticate, Link, 
...) would contain sufficient information to perform the login without 
having to do that; such as a URI to POST to, plus the parameter names 
for user name and password?

BR, Julian
