  Description     : Simple user sessions management

 User::Simple provides a very simple framework for validating users,
 managing their sessions and storing a minimal set of information (this
 is, a meaningful user login/password pair and the user's name) via a
 database. The sessions can be used as identifiers for i.e. cookies
 on a Web system. The passwords are stored as MD5 hashes (this means,
 the password is not stored in clear text).
 User::Simple was originally developed with a PostgreSQL database
 in mind, but should work with any real DBMS. Sadly, this rules out
 DBD::CSV, DBD::XBase, DBD::Excel and many others - The user table
 requires the driver to implement primary keys and NOT NULL/UNIQUE
