I'm committed to a plugable security manager for Vulcan that supports
both the existing scheme and something useable. Any thoughts on
requirements or ideas on an API would be appreciated.

My personal feelings are that security information belongs in a
database, and that storing a SHA hash of passwords makes the most
sense. There are other secure hashes. Does anyone has strong feelings
on the subject?
