    initial v1  
    1414but it feels hacky, so I decided to try implementing a new method `simple_login`.
    1515
    16 I found that we have to specify ``user.backend``, even though the authentication backend is not used to log the user in. I have documented that `backend` must be in `AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS` (if not, `simple_login` currently returns True, but any requests to a login protected view will be redirected to the login page). Perhaps I should raise a `ValueError` if the backend is not in `AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS`.
