Crystal Enterprise 10 custom auth?

Have any of you wrestled with Crystal Enterprise 10's authentication plugin sdk?  The SDK docs only mention the 4 pre-baked plugins (Crystal, NT, AD, and LDAP), but I can't find hide nor hair of how to create a custom plugin for authentication.  Google doesn't provide anything useful either.  I just need an answer - I've been assigned to measure this as a reporting solution, and this is a potential dealbreaker... thx.

Make sure you evaluate SQL Server Reporting Services as well. Even if you're not a SQL Server shop, SQL Server wouldn't be any more alien than Crystal Server.

SQL RE was apparently looked at before I joined the group, and was given a lower spot on the totem pole because a) it's an Oracle shop, and b) the company is a big user of other Business Objects products.
