Real life suggests 100:1 bad login to good login attempts. Mostly because
the bad cases just try again and again and again and vendors haven¹t heard
of backing off on failure.

If its normal and not actively malicious clients, try caching the rejects
for a short period to avoid bothering to go through the full logic on
every request.
