That's certainly a worth-while goal :-). I wonder if it isn't deceivingly simple in this case though.
Looking over the WABasicAuthentication with my ignorant eye, it seems it handles the whole auth interaction by itself (seems like another violation of separation of concerns to me, but anyway). So what happens if the HTTP server has basic authentication built in (not the case with Opentalk one yet, btw) ? What is the interaction between the two ? I assume you can turn it off on Seaside in that case, but how does Seaside get at the auth info in that case ?
