[wp-hackers] Feature or bug: Page password protection does not cascade to sub-pages

Hi -

I am not clear on why the parent page password protection is not
automatically inherited and cascaded down to child-pages listed under
the protected parent page. Is this a feature, or is it a bug?

Ideally, when I protect a parent page, all child-pages under the
parent page should also be protected, and should inherit the password
specified to protect the parent page. (If a user lands on a
child-page, and knows the password to the parent page, then he should
be able to read the child-page.)
