You'd have to hack up the filter a bit, but wouldn't be terribly
difficult; in the catch block in NtlmHttpFilter (catching the
SmbAuthException) you would just skip the bit where it sets the
WWW-Authenticate header and sends back an SC_UNAUTHORIZED response.
Basically have it fall through the catch, setting some flag in the
session indicating anonymous logon.
