Hey Tristan,

Thanks for your lovely message. I'm sure we can build out the 
authentication and access control along the lines you indicate, but it 
isn't there yet.

I'll try to say something sensible about the access controller, and get 
back to you.

Sadly, it may be a couple of days, because I'm approaching a couple of 
deadlines, and I also promised Christopher Hesse I check the patch he 
sent me a few weeks ago. ;-) Rufus and I are meeting over the next few 
days, so hopefully all blockages will be cleared after that!

Bye bye,
