Did you turn on 2-step verification recently in your gmail account, and then see MarsEdit stop working, and groan "NOW WHAT"? That's what I did recently, and fortunately there is a simple way to get 2-step verification to work with applications. The issue is that most (all?) applications do not know how to do the 2-step verification process and instead fail to log you in. By "application" I mean a non-browser application, like MarsEdit or Picasa, or I suppose some websites that do authentication against your Google Account might also fail to work.
