backend polling basic auth
For the backend health polling, I had to use the .request parameter to
specify the basic auth credential necessary to authenticate with the
backend; I'd definitely get a 401 if I just used .url plainly. For example,
using a bogus url,password of course...
"GET /foo/i_is_healthy HTTP/1.1"
My question is: Is there a much elegant approach to this? I'd rather
*not*have the base64 encoded string on a(ny) file on the server.
