Well, I might have been too fast in filing pubcookie in the category of 
code that do not meet my expectations but :
- The licensing scheme is unclear (cgic !), How the UW licensing differs 
from GPL and Apache ?
- The code is strongly attached to the University of Washington (shall I 
   add "AuthType     UWNetId" everywhere, login screen defaults to UW),
- mod_pubcookie seems complex,it might be hard to extend, It seems to 
mix HTTP authentication with UW authentication...
-  the login application is pure "C" code, I don't think it makes it 
easy to extend and to integrate in an application. It should rather be 
based on languages more familiar to web developpers (Java or PHP,
-  code does not compile easily (missing file),
- ...

This might be bad reasons, but I do not feel comfortable with pubcookie.
Has anyone, outside UW, experienced  pubcookie ?
