Thanks, Craig.  I'm a newbie to Apache, but I've written a script that already
functions as an "authentication handler" when I point my browser directly to it.
The problem was to get it invoked automatically before any other files.  I was
not expecting to write a module.  Judging from that and from the technical
detail you supplied, I don't think I should go there just yet.

I have no idea what "session management" is.  Where can I find info on that?
