Seriously Matthew,

I can build a variety of scratch guest (VMware) machines in 32 & 64 bit.  I
can snapshot them before the install so we can avoid the pain of a failed OS
due to an authentication bug.

Is this going to be a Win 7 only thing?  I do not have Vista (skipped that
mess) at hand, but can probably scratch around and find something if you
think it important.

Will this same feature work on the XP systems (which will probably be a
gina.dll thing)?

Hi Greg,

Yes. Its implemented as a Credential Provider and coming along nicely. 
Most of the work to support it was actually modifying the client code 
base to offer public profiles and to push all the reusable client code 
into the libike dll. The Credential Provider UI is ready to go. I just 
need to glue the client code to the Credential Provider which should be 
a relatively simple task. We already have 3 UI front ends ( CLI, Win32 
and Qt ), why not one more? :)

Thanks for offering to test this new feature. I hope to have something 
usable by Monday morning.
