That's got to be one of the most annoyingly useless answers I've seen,
and I'm not even the guy with the question!

Eric is looking for a solution for _now_, today, not some point in the
future when 1.3 is released. Marcus's answer (authz through apache, or
wait for 1.3) didn't fulfill his needs, so he asked for anyone who had a
more immediate solution; your response was to simply parrot back the
answer that he'd already received, and determined to be inadequate!
This would be acceptable if he'd simply missed something in Marcus's
reply, and you were drawing his attention to the pertinent information;
however, that's simply not the case.

And to Eric: would it be possible to separate the sensitive information
out into a separate repository, and restricting access to that?
