OK, I see your point now.  I'll have to look into that as well then (not a
bad thing to implement anyway).  I suppose I'll have to get a free
certificate which means those annoying popup dialogs warning me my site

Back to the topic at hand...anybody have any suggestions on my next step
(either how to get Apache to do authorization or how to put some simple
authorization hack into MythWeb)?
