well, if you like. But I think that having this:

Server choice: [(drop-down)]
or             [enter server name]

would not clutter the interface too much. Plus it opens the eyes of
users about this feature if we always show it, or if we
show it by default.

Currently if we have just one server, we even don't show it on the
login page, and I think that showing it would be an improvement.

Also, the auth_type 'arbitrary' somehow hides the fact that the mode
is really cookie.
