Fix HTTP Basic Auth  (#11838)
Issue

Basic Auth was removed when we migrated to Plack. Examine any existing solutions to adapt to WebGUI's Auth needs.

Consider ways to extend HTTP Basic Auth to more than just the WebGUI Auth plugin (LDAP? OAuth?)

There is a Plack middleware component to do basic auth.  It is enforced authentication though, not the odd optional (possibly spec breaking) method we were using.

It could still be used to do the actual header parsing work though if it was enabled conditionally.  It would end up setting the REMOTE_USER env variable, which could then be used during session init to set the session user.

Demoting this to "desired".  Initial versions of 8 won't support all of 7's features.  People aren't going to switch right away anyway (no benefit, entrenched in 7's API), so my focus is on new user experience.  If 8 takes off and people talk about wanting to upgrade, we can re-evaluate the situation then.
