It does (or at least it should have, I tried to keep it workable).  

But in the interest of being slightly more resource-friendly,
the version of the mysql authentication I'm wanting to create
would fetch only the single record associated with authid=,
rather than fetch all of the records and storing them into the
$AuthUser array (which could eat up a lot of space).
