Hardcoded authentication URL

The user should be able to specify the authentication URL at runtime as there are various MSN auth servers. Right now it's hardcoded as: #define SOAP_AUTHENTICATION_URL "" in passport.h. This should certainly be the default, but the user should be allowed to specify this as well. messenger runs separate clouds that users should have access to.

Hmm, interesting, I've never heard of that so far. Out of curiosity, do you have any examples of such clouds?

AFAIK the only other auth servers are in corporate networks that use microsoft services. Not as trivial to implement as just changing one auth url and completely outside the scope of bitlbee. Also, pretty sure there are no other clients that implement this.
