[Net-z3950] User-Information-Field in SimpleServer?

Just wondering if there's an easy way to add anything to the
User-Information-Field in an INIT response in Net::Z3950::SimpleServer, or
will I have to wait for Net::Z3950::SlightlyMoreComplexServer? ;)
My aim is to provide an MOTD and a dblist available to an authenticated user
(the list will vary quite a lot depending on who logs in) and I was
thinking of using the OCLC-UserInformation construct. Any other methods
would be considered too. I've already done a rudimentary IR-Explain---1 db
which only provides records for the dbs available to the logged on user.
Oh, while I'm here, I've also been looking for a set of diagnostics for
rejecting a connection in the INIT response based on "incorrect
username/password," "no available resources," "too many users," et c.
Anyone know of any?
