That makes it slightly more complex, since you need to break out of the 
loop in a None-challenger succeeds. Otherwise other None-challengers 
might be called... And also, how to differentiate between no challenge 
and a None challenge being called? ;)

Hmm...Of course, we could do:

   protocol = None

   for plugin in plugin:
       plug_protocol = getattr(plugin, 'protocol', None)
       if plug_protocol is None:
           plug_protocol == plugin.getId()

       if protocol == '' or protocol == plug_protocol:
           id plugin.challenge(request, response):
               protocol = plug_protocol

   if protocol is None:

That actually covers both protocol = None and no protocol attribute at 
all, both meaning that the plugin will run by itself. Not very 
complicated either.

Does that work?
