Could you offer a bit more info on why you would want it?  Like what 
kind of SIP phones are still out there that cannot handle the SIP auth 
specs in 2021?  If you think about it, they won't work with other SIP 
servers: no commercial SIP server and no Asterisk, FS, PJSIP, SIP.js, 
drachtio, reSIPprocate, etc.:  Not a single one of these implement this 
crazy "ha1b" feature, and none of them give a single damn if the phone 
is poorly implemented and appends the "@realm" part in the username 
component: they will happily reply with 401 Unauthorized until the 
implementor fixes the phone.

So why should OpenSIPS have this feature? Also, I suggest you open a 
GitHub feature request [1] as well on this topic -- maybe we get more 
opinions from there as well.
