Ah, now I remember. That's one of those APIs whose very nature
encourages code recycling and I know haven't actually looked at its
documentation since the last time it was updated.
So if you still have to present the user with an authentication dialog
then, from *their* point of view, is there any difference between the
two methodologies (helper tool vs. daemons-on-demand)?

Excellent. If I recall correctly, the fact that the previous
incarnation of sample code (MoreAuth?) either didn't work or wouldn't
compile factored heavily in my reluctance to revisit the API ;) I'll
definitely take a look at the new stuff.
