[Zope-PAS] documentation

I'm quite new with Plone and specially with PAS. I'm trying to develop a 
Plugin that will allow to log in through Shibboleth. I had a look at the 
work done by Samyn Brecht (thanks to him !), but I also wanted the user 
to be created on Plone itself, allowing for instance the user to modify 
his 'user preferences'. I also wanted to be able to use the plugin to 
make a complete login by visiting a dedicated URL, just in case all the 
URLs wouldn't give Shibboleth informations (meaning authenticate would 
be possible only under this dedicated URL).

It works more or less already, but I realized that users don't appear on 
the member list. I remarked that this is due to the fact that their last 
login time is never updated. And this makes me realize that even if my 
code seems to work, I'm really not sure how all those plugins work 
together... and what I wrote is probably not how it should be written 
with PAS.

So my question: is there documentation anywhere with guidelines to 
develop a PAS Plugin ? For instance, I'd like to know the order in which 
the interface methods are called, where do the parameters come from, 
which ones are passed to other methods when a method returns something, 
etc. Any chance to find this somewhere ?
