Historically speaking, the Login plugin was rudely ripped out of the Wifty
application.  The Jifty::Plugin framework was then added to support that code
(and other code) using the normal Perl inheritance model.  The Login plugin was
not completely rewritten to allow efficient subclassing, which is the problem
you and others have noted.  I believe that I can fix that, so I'm loath to rip
out the Login plugin prematurely... ;-)
