That's actually in a patch I will submit to Emacs once it's out of
pretest and the CVS tree is open.  You can find it in the emacs-devel
archives if you want it sooner, let me know if you need a specific

Yeah, that's nice!  It's exactly why I wrote it, and I want auth-source
to be hooked into every package that can use it.  So if you want, tell

with a patch if necessary.
