I'm not trying to be nitpicky but I will..

Is it really "intentional"?  I had thought that it was because this was
a Netscape-ism that wasn't a "real" HTML thing.

Well, even if that is the case, would it be easily possible to add 
the refresh mechanism optionally?  I sure as heck would rather have it
automatically happen..  (I hope this would also work with my Wells Fargo
account which doesn't _show_ a URL, I have to type control-R when it
shows the 'verifying password' screen.)
