#add_acts_as_authentic_module(mod, action = :append) ⇒ Object

Since this part of Authlogic deals with another class, ActiveRecord, we can't just start including things in ActiveRecord itself. A lot of these module includes need to be triggered by the acts_as_authentic method call. For example, you don't want to start adding in email validations and what not into a model that has nothing to do with Authlogic.

That being said, this is your tool for extending Authlogic and “hooking” into the acts_as_authentic call.
