Hi Slava,

Is there a reason you're not using one of our built-in auth methods instead
of HTTP auth? We probably won't support both an auth method AND HTTP auth in
post-review, as it's redundant and complicates things. However, using
built-in auth I imagine would work well enough, and you can disable
registration (in beta 3, which will be released I think this weekend) so if
that's the reason for using HTTP auth, you should be set in just a week :)
