This is all very easy to set up with htaccess.  I require a password and
SSL for access to anything in my mythweb setup.

However, special users/passwords for special areas of mythweb settings
has been discussed, and is also easily handled with htaccess passwords,
but I haven't had the time to figure out the specifics and put the
settings into the .htaccess file that comes with mythweb (I just haven't
done per-file access before).
