since the Catalyst::Authentication::Credential::HTTP::authenticate sub die's (triggering a detach) if it's not able to successfully authenticate, it's not possible to use this as part of a set of progressive realms since the die is not caught and the loop over the progressive realms is aborted. It would be nice to be able to specify a configuration flag that would tell this module not to short-circuit the authentication process. This would require the controller to manually call the "authentication_required_response" method but this is likely desirable anyway since one might want to tweak the realm name to match the generic progressive realm name.

Yes, that'd be totally useful, and would be very simple to add. Don't suppose you'd like to try to produce a patch to do this?
