Looking through the ra_neon code, I'm not sure I could detect either rhyme
or reason for when the maybe_store_auth_info() help was being called. Looks
like we just scattered those calls all over the place as we detected the
need for them.

ra_serf appears to take a more sane approach, remembering in a very
low-level request handler helper function when it had to re-attempt a
request (any request!) on account of insufficient privileges, and storing
auth creds if the second attempt succeeded.
