Restful Token Service Endpoints and Silverlight Clients

It turns out that there is no way in Silverlight to send credentials using the standard HTTP Authorize header (see here). WTF?!.

You have to use a custom HTTP header to transmit credentials in this case, e.g. X-Authorize (nice?). I have adjusted my service code to accept both headers and will update the StarterSTS bits on Codeplex.
