a method to "deauthorize" clients

Hi,

I've recently run into a situation where I installed a2c on a pc that I was using frequently, but no longer have access to. It would be nice to have a way to permanently revoke the link between a2c and one or many of the attached chrome instances. I took a peak through the settings in both the extension and the app, and I don't really see anything that seems to apply. I realize that I can rename the "identifier" which would in theory no longer push links to the "incorrectly" named chrome instances, but it would be great if there was a mechanism that listed authorized chrome instances. If possible it would be preferable to access this list from within the a2c app itself rather than the chrome extension so that only the device owner could access the "deauthorization" options.

Thanks ^^

    This is an interesting suggestion. I can't deny the appeal of it, but I'm having trouble figuring out exactly how I would go about implementing it.

    As it is, you "Authorize" the app as a whole to use your account as an identifier through OAuth. You can revoke access to all of your instances by using the [Revoke Access] link next to android2cloud at https://www.google.com/accounts/b/0/IssuedAuthSubTokens

    At the moment, though, there's no way to deauthorise a specific client other than to deauthorise everything, then authorise the ones you want to again. And I'm not sure it's even feasible to authorise/deauthorise on a per-client scale.

    Sorry, wish I had better news.
