The idea is that you should be able to configure as much as possible 
(which is why I just jumped to add config for the things you noted), 
_but_ easy to override with your own code _when_ you need to..

Right, this is clearly under documented - I'll see what I can do about 
sorting that out... :)

If you want to override the login controller, then just don't add 
CX::SimpleLogin to your app at all, then make a 
lib/MyApp/Controller/Login.pm which subclasses

No problem.

::SimpleLogin _works for me_ right now - but that doesn't really mean 
very much...

I've been holding off adding features to it from imaginary use cases, as 
I'll just implement the wrong things... I need people to try using it 
and complain about what isn't clear and which points they want to extend 
it at, but can't..

So thanks for the feedback :)
