Nothing personal, just that people seem mmore willing to shout "revert"
than to look and fix it. You did do that - so apologies if it sounded
like I was having a go. :-)

My biggest complaint is the lack of documentation or attempt at
documentation of the revised config. I'm more than willing to try the
new code and new config options, but if I can't find anything that tells
me how to make the change it's hard. Auth config has never been the
easiest thing in the first place. It seems that every time about how to
make the changes I ask I'm just told to "use the compat module". Are
people trying to move things along or not?

np. Apologies for it taking so long.
