Which is a significant point: the login.jsp page is not part of a public
interface. Trying to reuse it, and the User/Pass handler, is not a public
interface, and so doing so means reading that code.

OTOH, replacing the entire handler is what the LoginHandler interface
documents. Speaking as one who did so, I preferred to copy existing code
as a template to follow. But the internals aren't public interfaces.
