I'm looking into the best generic interface for the authentication
callback function.  Your patch added ccname there, but all your patch
does with it is to store it in the cli structure but then never uses
Why do you store it there but not use it?

I'd like to generalize the authentication callback interface with a
"user data" pointer that is settable and retrievable via the context.
If your user data pointer was actually the ccname, this would allow
your auth callback function to retrieve and/or set the ccname but not
have any action in regards to setting it in the cli structure.  I
think I'm covering the general case, but I'd like more info about what
you're trying to accomplish to ensure that this meets it.
