You could try to do something where you only allow three login attempts from a
given IP address before sending a permanent "403 Forbidden" response, but that
wouldn't work if the user was using a proxy (or even AOL).
You don't have direct control over anything but the realm name that appears in
a password request dialog (generated via Basic authentication), so that is not
an option either.
