Support easy pre-authenticated login

                 Key: JCR-2355
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-2355
             Project: Jackrabbit Content Repository
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: jackrabbit-core
    Affects Versions: 2.0-alpha11
            Reporter: Felix Meschberger
             Fix For: 2.0-alpha12

Some applications authenticate users themselves and just need to access the repository on
behalf of these pre-authenticated users.

Examples of such pre-authentications include SSO solutions or web applications using a web-based
authentication protocol not easily implementable in a JAAS LoginModule, for example OpenID
or similar.

In such situations a password may not be provided in SimpleCredentials and thus regular login
with user name and password is not possible.

Therefore I propose the enhancement of the AbstractLoginModule to allow for setting a specific
attribute in the SimpleCredentials attribute map. If this attribute is set, authentication
and login succeeds and a session for the user named in the SimpleCredentials is created.

As a starter we might just check for the presence of the attribute.
