It would be great if you explained what your patch does, rather than required us to read it to know...

Anyway, I guess it fits your needs, and that is cool for that.

    Ops! That's my fault! Here it is:

    1. sprintf() is not used anymore in query building. String interpolation is faster and cleaner.
    2. Instead of just parameters for database connection, the constructor now accepts a single parameter holding a DBI Object. Usually I share a DBI connection throught all mya pplication source code.
    3. Introduced a new parameter into the constructor to tell CGI::Session::Auth::DBI how to update and compare password values (I protect my database-stored passwords with MD5 Digest armoring).
      Does anyone know how to determine the current logged in username after a user has been authenticated? Thanks, Andrew
