Yeah, I figured a CGI script could do it, but this seems like a common enough
problem that someone else must've solved it before. And a solution created by
someone else (and used by many other people) is likely to be more secure and
robust than something I could hack up in an evening.

If anyone knows of such a thing, I'd really like to hear about it. If all else
fails, I found http://search.cpan.org/dist/Apache-Htpasswd/Htpasswd.pm, which
seems like it would make a writing a script fairly idiot-proof.
