ok, now i get it a bit more.

this functionality could be done at least two ways:

1) a PHP-like way: a couple of functions to be called from a script (CGILua, a 
handler, webCode, etc).  the script writer calls them and either grants or 
refuses access

2) a middle handler: this handler gets a few parameters to manage 
authentication (authorized users, a check funciton, a DB backend, whatever) 
and another handler (as a parameter too).  it checks the authorizations, if 
refused, generates the 401, if granted, calls the 'sub handler'

the first way is a bit easier, but the second one might be more flexible.  it 
also points to the way of a deep hierarchy of handlers i'd like to eventually 

any opinions?
