How about this:  
	with these lines in .htaccess:

	Require valid-user
	Allow from aaa.bbb.ccc
	Satisfy any

access is granted from hosts not in aaa.bbb.ccc
With the additional line:

	Require valid-user
	Allow from aaa.bbb.ccc
	Deny from all
	Satify any

the access control is restricted to login auth or the subnet specified, 
which is the expected result in the first case.

It is not terribly easy to find *that* piece of information coming to the 
Apache site.  Perhaps a Contacts page would be in order ... Hmm?
