[ejabberd] Custom Erlang authentication module

The exports returned:

check_password/3              is_user_exists/2
check_password/5              module_info/0
dirty_get_registered_users/0  module_info/1
get_password/2                plain_password_required/0
get_password_s/2              remove_user/2
get_vh_registered_users/1     remove_user/3
get_vh_registered_users/2     set_password/3

check_password() returned false (as expected, as I still haven't fully
implemented everything) and the ?INFO_MSG was called. When
actually authenticating with the server the ?INFO_MSG does not show up in
the logs at all.
