Subject Re: Authentication - Kerberose

Right now I'm still testing it to make sure things didn't get broken in
some odd way. There were a lot of changes made to not only the Security
randomwalk test, but also some of the underlying authentication semantics
to deal with permission caching. However, this is the first sweep (but most
substantial), because I need to figure out how best to deal with
authentication systems that are more complex then just username/password
tokens. But this is certainly a feature that will be rolled into 1.5, worst
case being it's introduced as a beta API which only supports user/pass
based login tokens.
