   Hi,
 Matt suggested in his Account management that the server will ask for
 credentials with an information for which source this request is made,
 so the auth_required signal may contain this information. I'll add a
 strv parameter to that, just for being ready even for more expansion.
 
 What kind of information will be known in this parameter depends on the
 receiver for the signal. Let's have it opened for now, but I believe
 this may cover your issue too.

As long as there is *any* sensible way to pass some data (a PIN string in our 
case) to the backend if the backend so requests, that will help us much. 
Thanks in advance for taking this into account.

(Bye)^2,
Christian

Hi again,

 Hi all.

 Maybe this is a more general thing than just having a backend requesting a
 user PIN. I can imagine other scenarios where a backend might need to
 request any user interaction, input, whatsoever, which is specific to this
 backend and cannot be taken care of in the existing general EDS API (which
 is limited to the typical things all backends need to do).

Of course, this is going to be fun - how to tell which of the possibly 
multiple EDS-frontends should receive the request? Ideally, the backends 
should be unaware of EDS-frontends... trouble galore! :)
