I think the idea is a good one, as long we have some trust in that
LWN's statistics on logins etc are good? I mean I am logged into LWN
using my fedora account, but I am only asked to renew my login every
90 days or so (maybe?). Does it log the last time I used a verified
cookie against the site, or when it asks me to renew my lgon?
