thanks for your reply, valdez! :)
You go on to say...
What you need instead is authentication, authorization and access control.
But for this to work, wouldn't I have to implement my own Apache module to intercept requests and do authentiation and authorization based on the value of the requested URI? At this stage, I've already written moderate amount of code (due to tight deadlines rather than hard reasoning :) for the www.pagekit.org MVCC framework. The actual framework is very sound and I've come to appreciate both it's simplicity and power. It is also easy to write handles to serve pretty much any content. I also had a past experience serving images from the database.
However, what you are suggesting sounds very enticing. I will appreciate it if you send me links to some resources on the web where I can further delve into this subject. ;-)
