Indeed - thanks very much for making that effort.

Hmm. Presumably the SXIP auth modules are picked up automatically, but 
you need some configuration variables for them as well?

LDAP has the same problem. I wonder: can we make auth modules queryable 
to find out what config they need, and then present it?

Have you filed bugs on the changes necessary here?

If you want to contribute the code to the main Bugzilla tree, you'd need 
to discuss that with Dave.
