Hey Paul,

Personally, I'd just use a location directive in the apache config, if you
have access to it. If not, it shouldn't be that hard to write a plugin. PHP
does support basic authentication, after all. It just seems like kind of
annoying to have to add a plugin for that, imho.

Okay, back to lurking,
