> It seems slightly more secure if the security token were put into an HTTP header instead
of in the URL when making requests back to the server from gadgets. This way the token is
not normally logged by proxies, etc.
> We'd still probably support the URL parameter for debugging purposes.
> I'm not a security expert, possibly others with more experience can weigh in on how important
this is.
