If it's pointing to the same server, wouldn't it?

How often is it that you would do *connection-level* auth (like
Kerberos) and have different creds for different paths?

Even if it were different, the failure path would be handled just like
any auth failure - ie would need to (re)present new creds in response
to a 401 auth failure... -- justin
