I wonder what we should do about that? The server is saying "you can
use bzr if you authenticate" so it's reasonable for us to ask the user
to authenticate.

Perhaps we should give a message "server requested authentication for
$url: $auth_domain"

But really if the server's kind-of offering bzr+http, perhaps the user
needs to specify the svn scheme.

Perhaps we should try "HEAD .bzr" before posting?
