Synopsis: 
Design of RealmBase class

Description:
I'm not so sure that RealmBase should declare:

  protected abstract String getPassword(String username);

an abstract method. A few authentication systems will not return a password, but rather evaluate
the password that the user supplies. Perhaps a better abstract method would be:

  protected abstract boolean validatePassword(String username, String password);
