Hello. I didn't see any examples of how to do HTTP Digest
authentication with twisted.web2, so I updated my ancient code in the
sandbox -- it was easier than I expected. Nice job with web2.
I had a few observations with my first run /w web2:
1. It would be delightful if WebContext had a request()
helper method that did the appropriate adaptation
to an IRequest
2. It would be excellent if locateChild was deferrable,
often times you need to access a database to construct
dynamically the appropriate resource. This is not a
3. It would be wonderful if HTTPError took arguments that
would construct an appropriate Response... it is trivial,
but a nice touch if it did.
Overall, web2 is looking quite nice; I'll have more feedback once
my entire application is ported.
