The config option exists, but it's not on the LoginHandler, it's
actually a servlet parameter (jaasConfigName) on the servlet.  So for
this scenario you have to create a second UsernamePassword servlet in
web.xml, set param jaasConfigName on it, and then point the second
LoginHandler at it with authenticationServletURL.  The servlet param is
documented here:
