Right now a non logged in user isn't allowed to do anything at all.
Which is weird, there might be cases where you want to have a backend that stores guest permissions.
I implemented everything for it, only to discover that the anonymous user doesn't even check the backends.
I think it's a small thing to add which will make the possibilities of custom backends even greater !
The default backend would get an extra check in the has_perm function that checks if the passed user_obj.
