I created collective.cas4plone some time ago for a client, just because
the maintainer of Products.CAS4PAS was not reachable at all for quite
some time. Seems like we were not the only ones with that problem.

I'd love to see all the cas4pas plugins to be merged into one single
package. The current situation is quite confusing for people looking for
a CAS plugin.

@Victor: Are you guys still using and developing collective.cas4plone?
