I kind of like the idea of getting the loop via callback, but it doesn't
solve the stated problem, since we'd have to declare the callback in
preauth_plugin.h.  Either we (1) somehow make the kernel lib not depend
on preauth_plugin.h, (2) supply the verto context as a void pointer, or
(3) accept the dependency for the moment.

That's a reasonable argument.
