Javascript digest auth request?


How does one do digest authentication using javascript? Is that possible? I'm using google web toolkit (GWT), and am using json requests to access a REST resource, but they want digest auth to access it.  A javascript example would be great,

(This is just like another question I just asked, I just wanted to see how to do a request using digest auth)

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.
