It runs with the access_checker/auth_checker hook.  Which is an authorization 
hook.  (So, yes, this implies that I think the access_checker/auth_checker 
split is off-kilter - they should really be the same, I think.)

But, I'll admit that mod_access_host isn't entirely bad.  However, it'd be 
really nice to re-do the second half of our auth system, but I worry that 
Sander's completely forgotten about his promises to do that.  =)  -- justin
