Is there already a ticket for this in track?
Does the priority increase as more people ask
for a specific feature?
As a note; uDig handles WMS behind basic auth.
You may want to peruse their source code before
reinventing. Of course, they are programming in java
so it's difficult to tell how much of the basic auth
is being handled directly by java as opposed to
the actual program handling it directly.
