I'm sorry, I done an English mistake may be (I'm not a native english
speaker). When I talked about another "challenge", I talked about the
support of any credentials (different from username/password).

I agree that the use of different hashing algorithm is trivial.
However, that's important to notice that the credentials at the client
side have to hash the password given by the user, if this last one is
given as clear text.

In the end, my main interest is to be able to use any credentials I
want. By for the moment, use any hashing algorithm is already
positive ;-) .
