Access is to be allowed to certaiin scripts based on a subnet membership 
( no login popup ) or by login when not in that that subnet.

Therefore, Satisfy any, but require either one or the other, and deny all

Actually, there is nothing in the great long list of links on the left 
margin which supports helpfully-minded non-core persons.  Mailing lists 
seems a likely candidate, but does not deliver.  Developer Info 
immediately puts off the casual user, and turns out not to provide the 
answer.  In fact, I have not found a link anywhere which *does* link to 
the page you suggested.

A simple path from the top would be very useful.
