Explanation (by tilgovi):
This is for developers.
Makes it possible to get an API auth token without having cookies, such as using curl, or any number of HTTP client libraries in any language.

This is for users too! I'd love not to have to copy paste in browser (and login cookies) the annotations I made and eventually edit them through HTTP queries.

Here is authentication cookies can be used from cURL, assuming cookies have been exported to cookies.txt (install firefox's export-cookies addon for example)

curl -b cookies.txt

Hi there! I'm going to close this as part of a clean-up of all issues currently open on this repo that represent ideas or features rather than reports of bugs or technical chores.

I want to be clear that this isn't intended to say anything at all about the content of this issue—it certainly doesn't mean we're no longer planning to do the work discussed here—just that we don't want to use GitHub issues to track feature requests or ideas, because the threads can get long and somewhat unwieldy.

If you're interested in what we are working on at the moment, you can check out our Trello board and, for a longer-term view, our roadmap.

And, if you're interested in following up on this issue, please do continue the discussion on our developer community mailing list. You might also want to check out our contributing guide.
