I plan to get back in the game again properly on this topic, sorry for being a
bit off for a while.

I believe this feature is setting a direction for how future applications will
want to do authentication with libcurl so it is worth spending time and effort
on making it right.

I would like us to get the basics working and then merge that into the master
branch and then continue to work with Steve, Jeff and everyone else to polish
it further and make sure it works for git, for non-HTTP protocols and that it
provides a smooth API for applications.

It will also make sure we don't break any existing functionality (thanks to
the auto-tests) and with our daily snapshots etc it will allow early adopters
and willing testers to have a go at it and try it out before we release it in
a public release.
