[webkit-gtk] how to override the default authentication prompter in WebKitGTK 2.0.x?

Prior to WebKitGTK 2.0 (WebKit1 API) we could replace the default 
WebKitGTK soup authentication prompter by connecting our "authenticate" 
signal handler before it (so that we would be invoked first), and then 
stopping the emission of the signal in our handler so that the default 
prompter would not subsequently be shown.  However as of 2.0.x, 
WebKitGTK's default authentication prompter is always shown after ours, 
even if our prompter has already performed the authentication (ie.- 
stopping the emission of the "authenticate" signal is no longer 
effective).  Is there a new way of vetoing the showing of the default 
WebKitGTK authentication prompter?

Thanks in advance,
