  New Revision: 64060


    webrick: Support bcrypt password hashing
    This adds a password_hash keyword argument to
    WEBrick::HTTPAuth::Htpasswd#initialize.  If set to :bcrypt, it
    will create bcrypt hashes instead of crypt hashes, and will
    raise an exception if the .htpasswd file uses crypt hashes.
    If :bcrypt is used, then instead of calling
    BasicAuth.make_passwd (which uses crypt),
    WEBrick::HTTPAuth::Htpasswd#set_passwd will set the bcrypt
    password directly.  It isn't possible to change the
    make_passwd API to accept the password hash format, as that
    would break configurations who use Htpasswd#auth_type= to set
    a custom auth_type.
    This modifies WEBrick::HTTPAuth::BasicAuth to handle checking
    both crypt and bcrypt hashes.
    There are commented out requires for 'string/crypt', to handle
    when String#crypt is deprecated and the undeprecated version is
    moved to a gem.
    There is also a commented out warning for the case when
    the password_hash keyword is not specified and 'string/crypt'
    cannot be required.  I think the warning makes sense to nudge
    users to using bcrypt.
    I've updated the tests to test nil, :crypt, and :bcrypt values
    for the password_hash keyword, skipping the bcrypt tests if the
    bcrypt library cannot be required.
