Just to point out that Trac's authentication is probably the most
annoying I've ever used. It would never remember that I was logged in
and every time I wanted to make a change to the Trac I'd have to hunt
for the 'Log in' button and enter my username and password. If this is
tied to HTTP auth, consider this a strong vote _against_ the proposed
system from someone who's had experience working with the system in
