I don't think that it was.

But I'm a little iffy on the status of that authentication block 
anyway... I'm not sure what the current recommended best practice is.  
I think someone (Carsten?) has written a replacement or improved 
authentication framework, I can't remember the details... or maybe 
there are other solutions.

For simple authentication scenarios, it's really easy to just do it by 
hand in flowscript, and that's what I've done a couple of times.  I 
haven't factored that solution into anything reusable, because I 
haven't re-invented this wheel enough times for a general set of 
requirements to emerge... plus I suspect someday I will go back to 
using something more standard anyway.

One thing nice about the auth block is that protected resources are 
called out in the sitemap.  That's something that feels like it should 
be in the sitemap.  I lose that in my flow-based solution.
