Bug Description

Accept an auth token as a cookie instead of a header. All the same existing rules likely still apply.

Why? Because people talk to Swift with web browsers, and it's easier to send cookies than custom x-auth-token headers.

Something to investigate: does Horizon do anything similar to this for its swift dashboard?

Sure, could be useful. Still gotta get the browser to go making auth requests, though.
