web2 auth is a much better architecture.

I only spent a few hours looking at it (primarily looking at how Apples 
CalDAV server implemented SPNEGO - very neat) but it seemed to me that 
it could issue multiple WWW-Authenticate headers and the browser should 
pick and reply to the appropriate one.

Was my understanding correct? If so, why did the digest checker cause this?
