So the only option I have right now (this is a prototype anyway) is to copy and paste the "verifier" so that I can later get the access token. I am basing my code in Sven's great Seaside demo.

It is actually Jan van de Sandt's code, he's the guru - I would hope that he can help because this is quite complex and hard to follow. It does of course not help that you seem to be trying to talk to a non-public OAuth service that acts a bit weird.

But...say I have to enter this code in my app...there is no way (as far as I understand) to map it to the (previously stored somewhere) request token. So I don't know which request token to use.
