> This improvement forms part of the proposal I made to the Qpid Developer List on 2011-05-16
in the posting entitled "Java Broker: Pluggable Authentication Managers".
> The existing AuthenticationManager and configuration classes will be refactored to allow
a user to choose an implementation of AuthenticationManager through new elements in the config.xml.
> Existing use-cases (that is authentication against the etc/passwd file) will be maintained
by plugging-in the PrincipalDatabaseAuthenticationManager implementation.   Future implementations
of AuthenticationManager could then allow authentication to be delegated to an external system
such as an LDAP Directory.
> This change *will* alter the format of the config.xml file.  Existing users of <=0-12
will need to edit their config.xml when upgrading.  Documentation will be updated to guide
upgraders and helpful error messages will gently reject older configure files.
