Yeah, I wouldn't really recommend starting with that class. It was
intended as a *really* simple way of protecting an app from the general
public, not for any real authentication/authorization.

AFAIK there isn't a reliable way of logging out from HTTP Basic Auth,
short of quitting the browser - that's one of the problems of the
protocol. New session does reauthenticate - in fact, you're
reauthenticated on every page view - but the browser is remembering
your credentials and presenting them each time.
Because of this, most people use form-based login pages these days...
