I agree with Marc - when first trying the new method out, I was quite confused on how to
use it, so maybe less-experienced users will get a headache from it. Maintainability
with this auth-mode should be easier as well, I don't see any real drawbacks when
merging it with cookies with an ability to turn it off.
