As a mixin, what functionality would it be providing?

The functionality it provides now is that arbitrary resources can be
protected by HTTP authentication without being modified.  I can't quite

I'm not really sure what you mean here.  You actually mixed
HTTPAuthSessionWrapper into a Resource subclass and got it to do something?
That's surprising, and not the intended use. :)
