if someone wants to add another authentication method, what is the
correct way to add something to the list of authenticated users or

I used this call:

  SessionAuth($pagename, array('authlist' => $foo => '1')));

to add the contents of $foo to the list of successful authentications,
where $foo can be 'username' oder '@groupname', but I'm not sure
whether that's the recommended way.
