How to authenticate FhirClient? #76

Let's say FHIR api got OAuth2 authentication on. Using OAuth2Client, I can receive authentication token. How could I use that token with FhirClient or is there another way to authenticate?

Btw, I can authenticate to HttpClient like this:

var client = new HttpClient();

The FhirClient has two events and two overridable methods that you can use to hook into the request/response cycle:

public event BeforeRequestEventHandler OnBeforeRequest;
public event AfterResponseEventHandler OnAfterResponse;

 protected virtual void BeforeRequest(HttpWebRequest rawRequest) 
 protected virtual void AfterResponse(HttpWebResponse webResponse, ...)

As you can see, these give you access to the underlying .NET webrequest/response objects so you can set the required headers and parameters.

Let me know if you need more than these hooks!
