That has changed in bender. If you wrote a library to pull from a slash
other then the default, you would gain the seclev from the site that
you pulled from.
I imagine that at some point in the near future the user methods will
their own library (I keep seeing this as being helpful for sites that
want to keep one set of logins/user info for all users). This will be
fairly trivial to do, its just not at the top of this list.

Sessions still exist but they are really only used to track when admins
last used the site and the current title of what they are working on.
Under bender you have one account, your seclev determines your privs. If
have a seclev >= 99 then you are an author. The admin.pl page determines
is displayed based on 1) if you have any stories posted 2) your seclev
is above >=99.
