Not "*the* service", but "a service".  In HTTP, you authenticate with the
server, because some URLs may be in managed "realms".

In PB, some objects may require authentication to access.  This means that you
might have to authenticate multiple times in the same URL.  I know that my
suggestion for URLs violates the accepted "standard" in some ways, but that's
because PB doesn't consider "server" to be a useful level of abstraction.
Everything is about objects.
