I'm currently relying on the req struct NOT being erased, because I'm
storing the realm the file belongs to there. Then, I'm using that realm
information to build the WWW-Authenticate header for the 401 error response.

I could just save that field before erasing everything else, but I
wonder if that's the way to go. If you are getting rid of everything,
maybe I shouldn't make exceptions?

Best regards,
José Miguel
