[Twisted-Python] Light-est-weight http authentication

I have a backend Twisted application with a front end in Django. Some of
their communication is via web services. Currently they are deployed on the
same box but may be separated in future. I want to enforce some basic
authentication on the web services, so some lightweight http header
authentication looks best. I've found the twisted.web.guard api, but it
seems to be more heavyweight than I require (e.g. running up a Portal).
Given the breadth of the Twisted apis, I'm confident I wouldn't have to
hand-craft something to check the auth header myself. What do you guys
