Right; that's supposed to be on my TODO list, but I created that plugin for a 
project I was working on and now it doesn't use LDAP, that's why it's kinda

Yeah, I'm sorry about that. I have final exams at the university in a few 
weeks and later on I should be moving to another country, so these days nearly 
all my time is spent studying and processing paperwork :/

If you're keeping the default Repoze auth integration in TG2, it should work
