HTTP Header Authentication for Application Passwords

Description

Use HTTP headers for application passwords instead of basic authentication. Perfect for those sites already protected by basic auth.

Username header: X-WP-USERNAME
Password header: X-WP-PASSWORD

Note that at this point the plugin doesn’t actually remove the basic authentication validation for application passwords, but checks the HTTP headers at a higher priority.
