Neat! Thanks for letting me know -- I love hearing things like that.
I've now made the change Khalid mentioned, adding the float conversion.

I don't remember if I ever posted a link to my writeup once I
got OAuth2 working. If not, it's

I'm still working on getting the script to spit out a clear message
when the token expires and you have to go get a new one (which I
think happens once a week, if you don't use it in that time). It's
hard to debug something that can only be tested once a week. :-)
Once I'm confident it's working, I'll probably make a cron job or a
.zlogin job that fetches the token; I'm hoping that if I fetch it
more often than once a week, maybe it won't expire, but I don't know
since they don't make those policies clear anywhere.
