I've got the BasicHttpAuthenticationFilter working but I'm unclear on
how to add the HttpMethodPermissionFilter. I can get something like

/account/** = authcBasic

to work but

/account/** = authcBasic, rest[user]

just seems to block everything.

Also, how do I configure different permissions for different HTTP
methods? E.g. allow everyone POST on /accounts (to create a new
account) but require role Admin for GET on /accounts (to list all
existing accounts).

How do I allow one particular user access to a particular URL. I.e.
how do I allow *only* user xyz access to /user/xyz/stuff? Obviously, I
don't want to have to configure each user separately.
