Ha, I didn't even know about that module. I don't think it 
existed when I first wrote all my mod_auth_tkt code (years ago). 
And I will do as you suggest and post to their list. In the 
meantime would you willing to share your patch?

I hadn't worked out the Session::* stuff yet. At the very least 
I expect I will need a separate cookies for mod_auth_tkt and sessions.

So I'm back to my original query, does anyone know of any HOWTOs 
for creating Authentication plugins?
