Hmm, perhaps I misunderstand how ECP works? I thought it required
explicit client support. Doesn't the client need to play assertion
middleman between the server and the idp? I had the (again perchance
mistaken) impression that the actual username/password was never given
to the server?

We already have some web services doing basic auth, so I don't have any
initial reservations on that front.
