Sorry to get in the middle of another subject, but I have a question 
about this auth rewrite. There's code in Bugzilla which I adapted to use 
Net-LDAP package and it seems to work OK, but my bigger goal is for 
Bugzilla to pick up credentials assigned by Apache, because I'm using 
mod_auth_pam for authentication right now. Every time I think of 
rewriting this I can't help but wish for an actual auth framework for me 
not to invent the wheel without knowing a lot about entire Bugzilla 
codebase. Now the question. Can I have a pick at what authentication is 
going to be like, and any way I could help in bringing it into the 
trunk? I could then proceed with my stuff.
