	In order to pave the way for mod_perl support, one of the largest tasks
I had was to re-write Bugzilla::Auth to not require a BEGIN block. Since
I had to restructure it anyway, I did a lot of re-architecture.

be more flexible and easier to write new plugins for. To maintain
stability, I kept nearly all the old Bugzilla::Auth code, I just moved
it around a lot.

have now finished a working patch.

	As it's such a large re-write, I'd really like many eyes to look over

	I've written a long, detailed guide to the patch in a comment on the
bug, including a "How to Review This Patch" section.
