It should not be too hard to copy parts of the auth callback code from
the http method. If you do that, the nautilus login dialog will work
for free. (This should not be done until after 2.0.0, of course).

Another problem is that the attributes that nautilus will result in a
separate round trip for every file, in addition to the basic
