The reason I wanted to avoid actual basic auth is that I liked having
a webpage that told you where you were going to authenticate, provide
some links to explain Cosign (for the pleasantly paranoid users in our
organization) and, most imporantly, to avoid the problem that browsers
never have a 'log out' for actual Basic authentication.
