I slightly prefer mac_secret, since it's possible to imagine that future
protocols might include other secrets. Or come to think of it, mac_key,
which is even more straightforward and even shorter.
Thanks for continuing to push for this sort of thing, it's making a
better protocol in a way that will last. Brad, you let us know when
you're tired of changing your Perl code and we'll call a halt to it :-)

Done. Also done the POST thing.
