Is it possible to generate a username & password dialog (on the client) within a filter as
part of an auxiliary authorization mechanism (the same dialog that appears when logging
into the Admin pages on the server)? I would like to be able to do this independent of
any Jigsaw authorization mechanisms -- e.g. ask a client for a username/password before
letting them see a document.

Second, IF the user already provided a username/password (for site access let's say, using
Jigsaw auth mechanisms), is there a way for the filter to access this information?

Paul.
