Why are you deprecating a very important feature for the basic auth method while your OAuth support is still in beta? The last official statement I read about Twitter and OAuth was that it went public, but is still considered beta. Also, if I did not miss an announcement, you were not yet

John, this looks pretty interesting! Two questions: 1) you are requiring to send a username and password for Basic Auth - how does that map to apps / services using OAuth, as they won't have access to a user's passwords? (and related, how does this fit into your general roadmap to move

I think Dewald's concern is very valid - and even though OAuth might solve it, the reality is that most (if not all) desktop and mobile apps are using Basic Auth today for various reasons, so if you implement this policy as described, there's a pretty high risk that many users can be locked out of
