Remove http.authAny
Back when the feature to use different HTTP authentication methods was originally written, it needed an extra HTTP request for everything when the feature was in effect, because we didn't reuse curl sessions. However, b8ac923 (Add an option for using any HTTP authentication scheme, not only basic, 2009-11-27) builds on top of an updated codebase that does reuse curl sessions; there is no need to manually avoid the extra overhead by making this configurable anymore.
