It's a simple matter to proxy though a servlet instead of the more 
traditional apache mod_proxy. In fact you will find so many java proxy 
servers it raises the question whether an apache proxy is needed at all.

According to my understanding this variable is set only when CHAP 
authentication is being used. If you attemtp to set this variable with 
out CHAP authentication you are in fact violating the spec.
