      Description

      Create a CGIAuthenticationScheme that defines a new AuthenticationScheme (see TRUNK-381) that uses CGICredentials, which contains CGI's REMOTE_USER – i.e., getRequest().getRemoteUser(). We can register this new authentication scheme through a module and then create a CGIFilter that hooks into the web layer's filter so, when a user is not authenticated, it can fetch the REMOTE_USER, create the credentials, and call the UserContext to authenticate with the CGICredentials.
