Why don't the standard auth hooks work for you? 

Yeah I know how it works -- people hack together a solution that appears
to work using the first thing they find... and generally don't find the
right solution the first time... and then report bugs on things which
they're using in ways we didn't intend... and then when we ask, "why
didn't the standard way that module foobar uses work for you?"  they say
something like "oh, I didn't think of copying your examples"... to
paraphrase things :) 

Yeah yeah there's no docs.  But there's a bunch of examples :)
