I can't answer the second question, as to how well it will work, but if
it DOES work then it should be in a recipe. I've been thinking that it
would be worthwhile to create a AuthenticationScenarios page on PmWiki
which talks about all the different authentication methods people have
wanted and how to achieve them. It would want to have a pointer to your
recipe. There are so many ways to handle authentication and so many
options that I fear newbies often get confused figuring out how to get
things to work as they wish.
