Second the recommendation for Radiator.  The only caveat is that it's
relatively resource intensive and when we came back online after a
maintenance power outage, several thousand people trying to re-login
to their DSL service pummeled the you-know-what out of a pair of Sun
UE2s.  On the other hand, it's insanely flexible, and worst-case load
may not be such a big deal in your application.
