Description linuxdude 2006-02-13 04:20:08 UTC
I discussed this problem with Derrell of having user data within ctx or some mechanism of passing user data in authentication function and Derrell replied like this and therefore i am adding the thing in bugzilla as per your instruction.

I understand your issue.

This would be easy to add.

Unfortunately, this, on the other hand, would not be easy to add.
