Each attempt at authenticating a particular set of credentials gets a crack, and either stands up for the creds, or returns None.

Yeah, but how does CookieCrumbler stop a basic auth box being popped to the user when things aren't authorized?

By intercepting the RESPONSE's unauthorized() method. It's pretty plainly there in the code. FWIW, this is how PAS insinuates itself into the process as well, but to allow for any of the challenge plugins to fire this way.
