// Currently, we are sending login cookies from the Chrome OS login manager to
// Chrome over a named Unix pipe.  We want to replace this with DBus, but
// would like to create a DBus wrapper library to use throughout Chrome OS
// first.  This stopgap lets us get the infrastructure for passing credentials
// to Chrome in place, which will help clean up login jankiness, and also
// refactor our code as we await the DBus stuff.
// TODO(cmasone): get rid of this code and replace with DBus.
