I think you all are missing the forest for the trees here.  The only
reason send(1) is passing down the bearer token on a command line argument
is because post(8) doesn't read the profile.  Yes, we could improve the
inter-process communication, but it would be simpler and more flexible
to pass down the needed profile entries via command line switches (send
already does this for at least one thing).
