Some quick questions on the authentication mechanism, at least as
implemented in Mosaic 2.x. I can't seem to find any specific
documentation on this subject.

Does Mosaic 2.x ever stop sending the authentication fields
to a server, i.e., is the only way to ensure that a session
is closed to close the window?

Secondly, how many different servers can Mosaic 2.x authenticate
to within the same window/process? Is it greater than 1?
