I thought most applications would want to redirect the user to a login
page in case of authentication failure instead of throwing a "403
Forbidden" back at them (the filter does not try to distinguish
between an expired session or a forged token), and didn't want to
complicate the filter with too many options. It is easy enough to
write your own version of filter, or use the authenticate method
directly (which does distinguish forgery and simple expiration).
