I wish my bank offered this, yes.  Given the ID they assigned, the
password is the only thing strongly protecting the account.

I can live with public IDs - none of my usernames are hard to guess, so
they're visible doors.  Without the key, the password, the door is
meaningless.

Can we get back to XML please?  I wrote a book on XML and a book on
Cookies, but I don't think they mix very well.
