Interesting.  I've been avoiding 2.2 until the new security model gets 
some more bugs worked out.  Unfortunately, this means I'm not
surprised that you had problems...

We seem to have consensus on this.  Looks like Kevin's taken over the
lead on getting to the next step which is a coherent interface for PTK 
Membership to use to specify how to set up its LoginManager (e.g. how
do I create a Membership instance using a Postgressql based UserSource 
here, and another Membership instance using NT domain logins there).

That's three in favor and none opposed so far.  I'll do it after
