Announcing the Header Authorize extension

Header Authorize creates alterations of the Login System to accept Header information for authorization. This allows you to use a central authentication system for multiple applications, including Radiant.

Using it would require that you handle user authorization in some way outside of Radiant while maintaining a list of allowed users and their roles within Radiant. Some of this may change as Header Authorize develops.

Currently it checks the incoming requests for headers[:user_email] and compares that to the list of users in the database.

I've only just put it together, so it hasn't been tested. We're planning on using multiple applications behind Sun Java System Access Manager ( so continued development will be geared toward that, but I'm happy to add other features if requested.
