Using HTTP Digest Authentication, it is, theoretically possible to
force the user to have to retype their password each time. See RFC2617
and/or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digest_access_authentication.

Basically, the server could change the realm with each request, thus
pforcing the client to re-prompt the user. Note that changing the
nounce will not work.
