Then, in the fine tradition of PAM-like authentication architectures,
we would simply need to write a new "authenticator" object that is the
composition of two other methods. In other words, after supplying
user/password info, instead of receiving back a repository session
object -- the client instead receives a new cert-authenticator
object that needs to be driven as the "second phase" of
authentication. When it finishes driving *that*, it gets a repository
session object.

Very doable.
