If we plan on allowing third party RSS readers to work (and if we want to support RSS), these clients will need to authenticate.  Currently, the only authentication is via the web interface.  We should add basic auth over SSL.

I think mod_auth_mysql (http://modauthmysql.sourceforge.net/) would work for this.  I'm adding oremj to the CC list to see if IT has any opinions on the module or alternatives.

As far as the actual implementation - how do you expect this to work with the normal form auth?  This module will appear before any login forms, which effectively makes the login forms useless.  A way to avoid that would be to have a unique address for rss+mysqlauth vs. rss+formauth, but that isn't very cool...

Will something like this work 'http://www.php.net/features.http-auth'?

That looks awesome - I can look into that once dougt and I determine some logistics.  Thanks oremj.
