Agreed - and this is where the focus should be.  It is quite possible I 
misunderstood (I haven't checked the code) but I feared the focus on 
'cookie auth' might only produce a system that integrates well with 
cookie-auth.  If the focus is on the integration and cookies just happen 
to be a 'test bed' for this scheme, then I think we are in violent 
agreement (although I'd still maintain that 'test bed' need not be part 
of the core...)
