It'd be trivial to store this as part of the authn_structure as a 'context' 
field.  Each provider could then store its config info in that field 
instead.  To reiterate, I think the ideal here is to come up with a config 
syntax that allows config-time registration of providers with associated 
configuration information.  -- justin
