Still a bit unclear to me anyway whether you want two LoginHandlers or
just one custom login handler that does multiple things.. :-)

Regardless, once you have more than one LoginHandler defined on the IdP
then it is up to the RP to request one or the other or the IdP will just 
choose (to some degree) one or the other for you.
