It is.  In fact, there's even a section in the README about how to
secure it using htpasswd.

I don't want to add a whole series of login pages to mythweb, it's bulky
and would annoy those users who don't open it to the world.  However,
there *are* future plans to use a group like thing to restrict user
access (via htpasswd) to certain functions, like the category editor.  I
just haven't had time to go in and write the htaccess settings to do
