I think we've got the initial code covered but code review help to clean up
some rough edges for the initial bits, and then I think there are a ton of
things to improve upon and a lot of places to start integrating the authz
portions into the system.

I think we'd also love to experiment with some signed-request options rather
than just a bearer token, though I think we've got good traction on the
first pass so I just want to get it into trunk and start from there :)
