Ignore that.  I was familiar with the URL because that's where we 
started, but re-reading I see the section on certs there as an 
alternative to shared secret.

Does LC's OAuth2 support certs as an alternative to shared secret?

Azure made setting up shared secret a snap, and I don't recall seeing 
anything in LC's OAuth2 lib for using certs instead, but would be happy 
to try it if it'll get us past this redirect issue.

Oddly, it appears as though we're authentincating fine as it is using 
shared secret, the only problem being that we're not getting the 
redirect to close the browser widget and return the auth code to us.
