But still, the apache conf will prompt the user for a user/pass ... I'm rethinking this part now...

I intended to use a simple pickled dictionary to store the user/pass info - just as a quick way of storing the info. (Wrinting the pickle wil be rare anyway). BTW, any particular modules in mind that I could use??
