merging in karl's URL-based auth is on the todo for the next 
release.  There has been quite a number of requests for this, and I think 
it is about time we deliver on it.  I'm pretty sure we'll just do URL based 
since that provides the most flexibility (and thats what karl has 
implemented).   I don't think there is any reason to provide a "Mysql" 
authentication mechanism, because that is a fairly trivial thing once 
URL-based auth is implemented.
