Add support for DIGEST authentication to remote HTTP deployments on Tomcat

Description

When I tried to use the Jenkins deploy plugin to deploy a WAR to a Tomcat 7 instance protected by DIGEST authentication it failed to do so with the error:

I dug into the source code on the trunk and discovered that the TomcatManager class only supports BASIC HTTP authentication:

TomcatManager.java

Could support for DIGEST authentication be added? I realize that this may require using another library to actually handle the DIGEST connection.
