Hello,

  Wondering generally about REST authentication, and specifically
about
whether it would make sense to integrate it with login_engine.

  I'm aware of the restful_authentication plugin, and the basic auth
mechanisms that it uses.  Is there any way that this could be tied in
to
login_engine?  restful_authentication has the same notions of model
against which authentication would be performed.  It seems like the
natural next step to combine these 2 mechanisms and keep everything
nice
and DRY, such that user accounts who could access the system via
normal
HTML would also be able to access the REST models.

  Seems like it would be a great project, and from the sounds of it
would not be exceedingly difficult.  Anyone have any thoughts on this,
or is there any reason this couldn't work?
