The only part of an HTTP request that the server has real control over
is the request line (the URL) and the cookie (and possibly the request
body if you are doing a POST).  Since the two sites are probably in
different domains and hence can't share a cookie, the only choice is
to embed the credentials in the URL in some manner.
