Hi Stian,

Thanks a lot for your precisions which will help me a lot. I have already
develop a theme in an earlier version and I had completely forgot that it
would do the trick, great idea.
I will also investigate the idea of implementing an authenticator in order
to add a cookie remembering the last used IdP because I also need the
classic login for some users.

Best Regards, Jérôme.
