	Okay, I spoke in haste.  I don't think we're actually going to
make the realm interface fully backward compatible, but we're going to try
to smooth the transition by not changing the interface *very much*.  For
example, it will now return an array of login modules configurations
instead of just one, so it supports multiple login modules, and some
things such as the local-ness will be configured instead of hardcoded in
the default implementation...
