"Other" cases?  This isn't such a case.  Note that just above the part
of Ian's message that you quote there he wrote:

  So when you get to a page that expects you to be logged in, it return
  a 401 with:

     WWW-Authenticate: HTML form="login"

That is, the HTTP header specifies the name of which form to use.
