Your wish is my command :)

Here's a new patch, that implements the same thing via $wgAuth.

You might want to check your encoding, there's a couple of strange changes at the
bottom of that..."ævar" is being changed to "ævar" for example, and there are some
other oddities.

$wgAuth patch update w/ UTF8

Thanks, Phil! I needed to modify my tool settings for MW, defaulting to UTF8
files. (This is my first OSS project that has made the shift.)

Attached file implements $wgAuth version of the feature, and has no UTF8
anomalies.

Attached:

Patch does not apply to the new preferences system, but on the other hand it should be easy to port it.
