Not that I'm a very big fan of it, but it's better than building something from scratch and it's widely used.

Hey fukami,

I agree that crypto is hard to do right but just out of curiosity why
don't you like OAuth? Is there anything else you'd recommend instead?

Maybe you could help us out doing this correctly from the get-go? I
think we'd all appreciate your help (since you seem to have some
experience/knowledge of the area). Would you be up for that?
