Basic/Digest Authentication for twisted.web.client

It would be very useful to have an implementation of Basic/Digest authentication in twisted.web.client.

I am requesting this only as a proposal, but I found out that in 2004, a working (at the moment) implementation/patch of such authentication methods was presented in the mailing list, see

I'll attach that patch for history/reference, though please note that the patch was actual for 2004 but definitely needs tweaking in 2010 (in particular, some code from twisted.cred may be reused). (But I have to mention, that I used the code from the patch to make a well-working Digest implementation in Twisted 10 for my own purposes). Also, as mentioned in the discussion, the unit tests are lacking as well.
