jkbullard and cron2 Clarify and expand management interface documentation
Clarify and expand the documentation for the management interface:

* Add examples of static and dynamic challenge/response sequences in
the "COMMAND -- password and username" section.

* Expand the "Challenge/Response" section with more detail.

* Use "management interface client" throughout (instead of "management
client", which was used in several places previously).

* Clarify when both a username and password are needed, not just a
username or a password.

* Clarify that an exit with a fatal error for a dynamic C/R will occur
only if "--auth-retry none" (the default) is in effect.

* Fix a typo. ("posesses" => "possesses").
