The filters now available include:    AccessLimitFilter
    CacheFilter
    CounterFilter
    DebugFilter
    ErrorFilter
    GZIPFilter
    ProcessFilter
    PutFilter
    PutListResource
    PutSizeFilter
    PutedEntry
    SimpleCacheFilter

...by descriptions in the docs, none would _appear_ to do this.  If
possible I would be interested in seeing this example if you could
make it available.

BTW, what generates the client-side authorization dialog?

Regards,

Paul.
