"Other" cases? This isn't such a case. Note that just above the part
of Ian's message that you quote there he wrote:
So when you get to a page that expects you to be logged in, it return
a 401 with:
WWW-Authenticate: HTML form="login"
That is, the HTTP header specifies the name of which form to use.
