+1 on Acegi.

We've been doing auth "by hand" for years, I think we've used just about 
every technique over time (writing servlet filters, writing WebWork 
interceptors, doing checks in the Action's exec method, using 
container-security, etc).

But having just climbed the Acegi learning curve (it wasn't as bad as I 
feared, particularly if you already know Spring) I can say that, for us, 
it's absolutely the best thing we could be doing.  Should have done it 
years ago.
