Description: User Folder workalike and replacement for Zope
 LoginManager is a User Folder workalike and replacement which solves the
 "N * M" problem seen with previous User Folders.  Because of its
 PlugIn-based architecture, it will almost never need to be subclassed to
 implement custom functionality. (For more information on the PlugIn
 system, see the Products.ZPatterns.PlugIns module source.)
 LoginManager uses two kinds of PlugIns, the "User Source" and the "Login
 Method". User Sources provide an interface to an arbitrary store of user
 records. A LoginManager may contain multiple User Sources, and will
 search them in user-defined order until one returns a valid user object.
 Login Methods are responsible for examining a REQUEST for identification
 and credentials. They are also indirectly responsible for authenticating
 the user. In most cases, they simply call user.authenticate(), passing
 the credentials (typically a password) they extracted from the REQUEST.
 A single LoginManager may contain multiple Login Methods, which are
 tried in user-defined order, and the result of the last Login Method is
 used. (Most Login Methods simply return the result of the previous Login
 Method if it had already validated a user. But the sequence is chained
 to allow for voting, multi-credential requirements, etc.)
