I specifically did not want to include "arbitrary" applications. If that
falls out, fine. Logically, authenticating a browser to a web server
should extend quite straightforwardly to general client/server. However,
without a real example to drive the requirements, trying to meet the
needs of arbitrary applications is arbitrarily hard.
