v1.272 March 14, 2019
Added URL parameters "p", "prot" and "protected" (they are all equivalent) to force a
password protected channel to be used when connecting. This is for the case of a Kiwi with
a mix of password protected channels and publicly available channels without a password.
And you want to connect without decreasing the pool of public channels.
Note that if you are connecting from the same local network as the Kiwi, and admin auto-login
has been setup, this is counted as a connection from the password protected pool and you
do not need to specify this parameter. So you would not need to specify the "prot"
parameter for a Kiwi on your local network but you would need it for a Kiwi installed at
a remote location. Or it would be needed by a group of users to access the private channel(s)
without impacting the availability of the public pool.
From the CHANGE_LOG file: More information about URL parameters: http://kiwisdr.com/quickstart/index.html#id-user-tune
kiwiclient.py needs to be modified to take advantage of this change.

I'll tell you what worked not what should work, I'm not bright enough for that...
If you want me to test (and don't have others using it) set a temporary password and I'll give it a go.
Maybe the & wasn't the fix the third attempt was.
Also, you are correct about '?' and '&' in URLs. But '?&' works, probably because the '&' is ignored. If you actually wanted to use an '&' in your URL parameter it would have to be escaped.
