Thank you so much Scott.

I just realized that my question is also related to another recently asked
question, whose title is:
              "Multiple Username/Password login handlers"
asked by Clay Cooper.

In that email, there is a concrete example.

Anyways, this requires a lot more configurations than option (2), I will
continue with option (2).
