maskit commented on issue #671: Should authParamsString for Authentication 
support another format ?
   I think the entire parameter value should be parsed on plugins side. Then 
plugins can choose any format they want. Some plugin may need just a keyword, 
some other may need binary data. This would break compatibility though. I'd say 
the current interface could be better. (When can we make incompatible changes 
   If we need to keep compatibility as possible as we can, 4th option would be 
"Encode values" (== don't allow to use ":" and ","). Any encodings which 
doesn't use ":" and "," (e.g. base64, URL encode) are fine, and we can (should) 
delegate the decoding to plugins.
