/* BROWSER SIDE ACCESS AUTHORIZATION MODULE
This module is the browser side interface to Access Authorization (AA) package. It
contains code only for browser.
Important to know about memory allocation:
Routines in this module use dynamic allocation, but free automatically all the memory
reserved by them.
Therefore the caller never has to (and never should) free() any object returned by
these functions.
Therefore also all the strings returned by this package are only valid until the next
call to the same function is made. This approach is selected, because of the nature of
access authorization: no string returned by the package needs to be valid longer than
until the next call.
This also makes it easy to plug the AA package in: you don't have to ponder whether to
free()something here or is it done somewhere else (because it is always done somewhere
else).
The strings that the package needs to store are copied so the original strings given as
parameters to AA functions may be freed or modified with no side effects.
Also note:The AA package does not free() anything else than what it has itself
allocated.

Routines for Browser Side Recording of AA Info
Most of the browser-side AA is done by the following two functions (which are called
from file HTTP.c so the browsers using libwww only need to be linked with the new
library and not be changed at all):
HTAA_composeAuth() composes the Authorization: line contents, if the AA package
thinks that the given document is protected. Otherwise this function returns NULL.
This function also calls the functions HTPrompt(),HTPromptPassword() and HTConfirm()
to get the username, password and some confirmation from the user.
HTAA_shouldRetryWithAuth() determines whether to retry the request with AA or with a
new AA (in case username or password was misspelled).
HTAA_TryWithAuth() sets up everything for an automatic first try with authentication.
HTAA_ClearAuth() clears the currently allocated authentication record.
