Presenting localised login messages to users

(I was writing an Bug item, but started to have so many doubts and "what if"'s that I preferred to post my ideas here)

Currently the message that is presented to the user is stored in the configuration {AuthRealm}, and can't be translated. My idea was to change it to somewhere inside a maketext call (so the extraction tool can detect and add it for translation).

This would work at least for the default message. I think that if admins customize the {AuthRealm} string, then they wouldn't need translations of it. (maybe that's a bad assumption) (??)

On the other hand, as TWiki.cfg says, {AuthRealm} is used to encode MD5 passwords, so {AuthRealm} should be constant. I imagine that we can use always the English text for encoding purposes, and use translations "merely" to present to the users a message in their language.

Suggestions, ideas?
