unclear - we're actively working with our infrastructure and operations
teams on capacity planning specifically so we can increase the rate limits.

personally, i would -love it-, if everybody just used the oauth web workflow
so that none of you even see a user's username/password. that would make
the web more secure. i'm even soliciting suggestions on what we could do to
make the web workflow better. i understand, however, that the PIN workflow
can be off putting for some users.
so, implementing oAuth instead of xAuth would make me happy - but i doubt
that's a motivation for most developers.
