There's an API for remote authentication modules which are then simply
dropped into system/classes/authentication


The LDAP, LiveJournal, and the now defunct Blogger authentication
modules were implemented that way.

The OpenID login process, however, was too different from what that API
allows and had to be hard-coded.

I have never even used Facebook and have no idea how their login process
works and whether or not it could use the remote authentication API ...
