My question goes along the previous one in this thread.
How do you get the browser to prompt for a username and password?
My code is not woking and goes something like this: On every page request 
a certain function is called, say genpage()...

def genpage(request)

     return "hello world"

-> Browser does not prompt though. (And this does not even involve woven)
