That by itself might not be a big problem, I think. I have my browser set to cache everything, but this is my personal computer in my house that only I have access to, so it's not so much of a security problem for the password to be sent back in plain text. It could be trouble for a user who sets their browser to cache everything without understanding the security implications, though.

[Corion]: Hmm - is anybody aware of a "protocol-only" HTTP module? I'd like to teach Prima non-blocking HTTP ideally without using threads, but that means reimplementing/ rewriting something like HTTP::Tiny (except asynchronous) or AnyEvent::HTTP
[Corion]: Ideally, the HTTP state machine but with a way to feed it HTTP data whenever I get it instead of it actively doing stuff.
[Corion]: Now that I talk about this, maybe Net::Inspect::L7:: HTTP would be the right kind of thing for the responses at least.
