This looks very useful. There seem to be too many communications back
and forth, though. I envision:

1. Client site causes user's browser to redirect to server site with
RPC arguments, etc. Use a self-posting form if you need POST.
2. Server site asks user to approve request.
3a. If approved, site performs request and redirects back to client
site with return value.
3b. If rejected, site redirects back to client site with exception value.
