Ncat proxy authentication

Ncat now works as an authenticated HTTP CONNECT proxy:

        ncat -l --proxy-type http --proxy-auth user:pass

Both the client and server only support the Basic authentication mode,
which is vulnerable to password sniffing. Still, it keeps just anyone
from connecting, and now with better HTTP handling in Ncat it will be
easier to add better methods in the future.
