Subject: Firefox Accounts client, storage, and HAWK

Hi, all,

Yesterday, Brian Warner generalized the Firefox Accounts client, storage, and HAWK elements so they should work for both desktop Firefox and FirefoxOS.  Brian enthusiastically wrote:

Got that?  The code works against a live backend to create and sync an account.  It is amazing how quickly Brian got this worked out for us, and glorious that he could do it before departing to a conference and some days of time-off.  Thank you Brian for all your work in the past few days to support us all.

Today we got this code rebased, diffed, and applied against latest m-c.  The patch is attached to bug 935232 [1].

All the services tests pass green on my local build, and tbpl looks good so far [2].

Put another way, Hallelujah.

So let's start integrating the next level up in the architecture.  w00t!

(Note that the tests for test_account need to be augmented with a mock http server.  I'm happy to this.  Literally happy.  For now, the test in question is commented out.)

Cheers, and have an excellent week-end,
