Maybe HTTP/2.0 is a good time to try fix that.
Well, we have an existing authentication framework. It would be
interesting to find out what's missing from it.
session support with login and logout would be good. I know it's a can

But this is why no websites use HTTP auth to speak of, which makes it
difficult to do integrated authentication.
