LM seems to be pretty happy on the whole with 2.2 at this point.

Actually, my short term goal is to make everything the PTK currently offers
available as separate components (and as the PTK bundle), and to make things
ZPatterns-aware. So, the Membership part that I'll be releasing will
basically just set up a LoginManager with the high level interfaces... I'm
not going to spend any time worrying about other UserSources and such at the
