To only add support for CURLOPT_AUTH_REALM (or whatever the option should be
called, there probably needs to be two as server and proxy authentication are
separate and can happen basically simultaneously) should be rather easy and
quickly done (ie within hours if made by someone with a little libcurl hacking
experience). It mostly takes adding parser code that gets the realm from the
incoming auth headers and compares them with the set string so that it can
ignore the wrong ones.

Then some more for documentation and tests.
