class HttpBasicAuthentication(object):
    Basic HTTP authenticater. Synopsis:

    Authentication handlers must implement two methods:
     - `is_authenticated`: Will be called when checking for
        authentication. Receives a `request` object, please
        set your `User` object on `request.user`, otherwise
        return False (or something that evaluates to False.)
     - `challenge`: In cases where `is_authenticated` returns
        False, the result of this method will be returned.
        This will usually be a `HttpResponse` object with
        some kind of challenge headers and 401 code on it.
