Authentication - Am I correct in believing that, unless you use the 'cookie' method of auth, then you are expected to send the auth details with each LJ request? Unfortunately, the Apache Xml-Rpc library for Java doesn't support cookies, and I don't feel like hacking the code unless I have to - so that means 2 requests per 'LJ Request' as it were (challenge/response) - is this considered OK?
Are there any plans to add the option to send session cookie with the RPC call instead of as a POST header? Since you can send any other authentication method with the call, it seems a shame that you cannot send the session cookie in the same manner. And of course, it means that xml-rpc wrappers that hide the POST request from you cannot use the cookie method. Is there another LJ that I should request this update in, or can I go through a CVS and put forth a suggested update myself? I guess it shouldn't be that hard - I would imagine all these vars are handled around the same place.
Many thanks, and apologies again if ant of this is 'bad etiquette'. Consider it also a kind of introduction too!
