This might be better on the dev list, but the Authenticator and Authorizer 
interfaces should let you drop a jar in the classpath and turn them on in the 
yaml - you shouldn’t NEED to change much code, but that doesn’t mean the the 
interfaces have considered your use case.

If the interfaces are insufficient for your needs, or you’re bumping up against 
visibility / access problems, we may be able to change things in the next major 
to facilitate the changes you need.
