[Zope-dev] Products.PluggableAuthService always queries all authentication plugins

when trying to authenticate credentials, all authentication plugins are
queried for the user credentials. the docs say, it stops when the first
user is found:

but it's implemented differently:
https://github.com/do3cc/Products.PluggableAuthService/blob/master/Products/PluggableAuthService/PluggableAuthService.py#L595 - here the userinfo is added to a userids list, enumerating all activated authentication plugins.

with a admin user defined in in acl_user's source_users authentication
plugin but also having a LDAP authentication plugin ordered after
source_users, it would be convenient to not having to deal with LDAP
connection timeouts, but being authenticated right away.

what's the purpose of having a list of user credentials to be
authenticated anyways?
