Although it's not passed into the check methods, the vhost is passed 
into the "register" method, so you could override that and stash the 
result in your plugin object like this:

sub register {
     my ($self, $vhost) = @_;

     $self->{__my_auth_vhost} = $vhost;

Since you get a separate instance of a plugin for each <Plugin> 
declaration in the config file it's okay to tie your instance to the 
vhost like this, as long as you make it an instance property rather than 
a global.
