API is subject to change, it is basically my first attempt and when I
have some time I want to refine it to make it more useful.
I am wondering if it is possible to update the builder API to change to
overriden implementations of the mechanisms for example: FORM. In my
case, the SAMLAuthenticationMechanism would be a subclass of
This should be possible. We will also need something similar in the

an OAuth driven Auth Mechanism.
I guess as a start the builder api should be updated. Not sure how it
