> The UserAuthenticationData should be used as vehicle to transport authentication data
to the individual providers. While it is open for new authentication data types, it limits
the values of the data to be a character array. Therefore it does not fit for authentication
with private keys or certificates like it is possible with e.g. SFTP or FTPS.
> For a proper support of the latter authentication types, we have to support arbitrary
value types in the UserAuthenticationData. To add this functionality without breaking binary
compatibility, we have to make a compromise by adding new getter/setter methods to the  class
that will replace the old (now deprecated ones), because the getter will now return other
types than char[].
> This patch is used as base for VFS-283 and for support of client certificates with FTPS
(no JIRA issue yet).
