Rails plugins for authentication, metrics

I found the authlogic plugin a great help for simplifying authentication for a rails app. I have also used restful_authentication before, but I liked the idea of having a plugin for the authentication rather than generating an User or likes.

Metric_fu as a plugin is very helpful in understanging an existing project or improving the code quality. I like the metrics from Flog, Saikuro and Source Control Churn.
