>> auth against AD / LDAP is already done in recent patchlevels.

My stuff is getting the user/password from moin's UserPreferences "login 
form", then checks against AD / LDAP and then sets the cookie.

> Is it doing HTTP authentication?

No, it is authenticating against LDAP and uses the cookie to stay logged in.

If you have some http auth running in your web server that already uses 
ldap / ad as backend, you need just to enable http auth in moin, that is 
already there for long.

Hehe, let's see. :)

Maybe tell them we will support you if you do GPL code that will be 
published. :)
