IMO we should just wait for RSS readers to become a bit smarter and use 
cookies etc. Akrgegator uses KDEs authentication, session/cookie system and 
it works Just Fine. Firefox (afaik the most used rss reader) uses its 
sessions too, which leaves us with web-based readers that cannot log in. And 

Maybe we should lay some more pressure on thunderbird instead? And on the 
web-based readers to provide session based, ordinary web logins?
