This could very well be solved by giving the IRequest to .decode This would allow for clever behavior from adding responseFilters that add the next header. This isn't exactly "handling" multi-step auth but it may be good enough for most purposes.

This is no longer relevant, credential factories get the full request and so can implement things such as the outgoing kerberos WWW-Authenticate header (the one sent after successful authentication) can be implemented with a response filter (specifically this is how the Darwin Calendar Server implements kerberos)
