/**
 * nsIHttpAuthManager
 *
 * This service provides access to cached HTTP authentication 
 * user credentials (domain, username, password) for sites
 * visited during the current browser session.
 *
 * This interface exists to provide other HTTP stacks with the
 * ability to share HTTP authentication credentials with Necko.
 * This is currently used by the Java plugin (version 1.5 and
 * higher) to avoid duplicate authentication prompts when the
 * Java client fetches content from a HTTP site that the user
 * has already logged into.
