Is it so difficult for local connections without this?

Perhaps supporting #3737 will reduce the need for this sort of complication?

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

It's not a bad suggestion, but I don't think it's very beneficial, and could also bite people who change one of those settings without thinking. Also, passing your authentication is not all that awful. In most cases your browser will remember it anyway.
