I've been thinking again about how we can stop using so many passwords
across the web. Now that pretty much every browser can be signed-in-to, we
could try to standardize a way of getting *that* account.

Proposed:

    navigator.auth.get() -> Promise<JWT>

I have a contact on the Microsoft Edge team that largely agrees with the
idea, and my next steps would be to try to contact people on Chromium and
WebKit and see if this is something we could pursue.
