Why in the hell has basic API logins stopped working? I now need to either
set up an Oauth provider/client or use Special:Botpassword.
Having a standard login option should be available, otherwise anyone who
codes for using the API is going to get screwed. Apparently it will require
setting up special permissions and login processes depending on what
version of MW the wiki is using... Why cant we just keep a standard process
and allow for more options?
