Well, I don't think that you'll be adding new auth providers every few
days, so adjusting the initial size of the array is really not too much
work. And sure, it doesn't affect the behaviour of the client at all,
but as you said it's ugly. After all, the initial size is set to 10 - if
you don't care about reallocation you could have chosen 1 for that
initial size.

Anyway, if you don't like it, don't use it.
