FS#93 - Support external authentication

It would be handy if we would authenticate against an external back-end, such as the host system (PAM), external DB, or LDAP.

This would entail auto-creation of "user" profile information if a previously-unknown user logs in successfully.

An interim step is to key off the http authentication headers, and let apache (or whatever) deal with the user/pass mess.

This is a lot simpler than a true pluggable authentication backend.
