I know that tersus web has a distinct login dialog instead of the browser-based Basic Auth, but the tersus web application isn't available for downloads in the example section any longer. I was going to dig into that to see how you guys did it.
I think the biggest hurdle to new developers of this framework is the sketchy documentation.

Perhaps opening the Documentation section up to be used more like a wiki would encourage people to fill in the blanks when they figure something out.
