Yeah I know I'm potentially playing with fire here; just curious if
there are other options I don't know about that are more secure than
http auth.

This actually isn't an issue: my phone's browser remembers the http
passwords for a while without cookies. I was surprised by this feature
but use it regularly and find it very convenient. With http auth, I'm
mostly worried about someone going 'all hulk on it'.

I asked for opinions so no judgement here!
