> According to the JAAS LoginModule contract, if a login fails, the LoginModule should
throw an exception from the login() method (typically FailedLoginException).  We instead return
false, which does not mean "login failed", but instead means "this login module is not appropriate"
(the stated example for returning false is a root login for an NIS login module).
