Create Provider with specific controller #638

Currently providers seems to be quite limited in the rendering of the request phase (and rendering of other phases).

I want to write a provider that asks for a userID and password. Then it has to check with an internal service if this combination is valid (so omniauth-identity won't do, neither is the form on an external service like OpenID or OAuth API's).
Currently their is only OmniAuth::Form which looks completely out of place in my application.

Even putting the form in my application itself and not using the request_phase won't really work because when the authentication fails I'll need to have a dedicated error page where the form is repeated with an error message;

This is more of a mailing list question. You could just literally call through to a Rails controller in your request phase:

def request_phase
