Remember the last bake-off2, we encounterd a lot of incompatibility
with "chunked" servers between clients, most of them had not cross-
platform tested. I think it was because only a few chunked-enabled HTTP
product were available(and even some of them came with bugs).

If we mandate Digest Authentication for IPP/1.1, I'm worryed about that
some products will be shiped out without cross-platform testing unless
we have bake-off3. Of course I won't have yet another bake-off anymore.

Does anybody know *ACTUAL* HTTP product(server or client) with Digest
Authentication available today?
