> The various constructors for Authorizations are somewhat all over the place. There is
only one which uses Strings (most convenient for the user) but it only accepts them via variable
> The rest are in some form of bytes. One is a comma seperated byte array, one is a List
of ByteBuffers, and then there is another which is a Collection of byte[].
> We make extensive use of bytes instead of Strings due to encoding concerns. I would like
to see a bit more consistency in the constructors for Authorizations. Because right now we
sort of have a half assed approach of being safe by using Bytes, but then having Strings (as
var args) for usability. I think we need to come up with a definite yes or no on Strings,
and then provide appropriate methods for dealing with them.
