Thanks Sina, I wasn't clear.  It was really whether or not people see
it as significant enough to be missed.  I'm happy to give pointers on
how to get it done but I haven't the time or inclination to do the
various credential-cache-clearing maneuvers required to properly test
it.  The code is trivial, testing this particular thing fully is the
burden - I'd be happy to implement it if someone else were inclined to
test it:)  For now, I'll create a JIRA issue, check in what I have and
if someone wants to build on it, they can.
