My approach is to first use the slightly ugly solution where session.user returns the current user, and then later (in a separate PR) replace session.user with something else.

- database: prevent rollbacks
- test client: run each request in a separate app context
- add `make_test_client` fixture to create new clients
In that case the original exception is likely more relevant so we avoid
re-raising the authentication error but rather silently discard the user
that failed to authenticate.
We keep accepting the old links for the dashboard ical feed but no
longer generate such URLs.
We do not need to encode the data in the token, a simple signature is
actually enough since the user id is prepended to the signature part of
the token

Also use sha256 instead of sha1 for the HMAC signature. While SHA1 is
still fine for HMAC purposes, using a stronger algorithm doesn't have
any disadvantages and the tokens are still reasonably short.
Happened if someone had no title
To be removed when cc2cab2 gets reverted (or earlier if we can ditch
tokens-in-querystring before the implicit flow itself)
The CSRF checks no longer need to be disabled manually because any
oauth-authenticated request is no longer subject to CSRF checks.
We always put a user id in that url, and accessing it without one
actually failed with a KeyError
Looks like we don't need it in the end...
The oauth RFCs actually specify statuscodes, so replacing everything
with 400 is ugly

Nice, I like the way this is heading 👍

For future reference, we talked about the possibility of keeping the simple assignment session.user = instead of the setter, but that behaviour is only meant to be restored later when session.user is replaced and setting and reading to the exact same thing.
