You don't really. On our webserver there is a cronjob that obtains a new
token every day.

Another solution might be the `tokentool' that got included into the
5.2.7 (source) release, which allows an administrator who knows the
auth2 key to generate a user token with a longer validity. I used it
when I went on vacation for 2 weeks to make sure my email wouldn't start
bouncing all over the place. It can be found it in the coda-src/auth2
