NTLM support in HttpClient merged

After years of legal uncertainity it is now finally possible to include NTLM implementations in Apache software. Also the Http Components and formerly HttpClient had continuously refused to include any (more) NTLM code, or the LGPL jcifs library. Today Oleg has finally merged a patch that supports NTLM v1, v2 and NTLM 2 as authentication mechanisms. This looks like a big milestone for people that rely on NTLM as their primary authentication mechanism.
