In the documentation on NCSA's server, there is a referer directive
allowed under <Limit> (see the following URL for more info:
This restricts access to a document based on the referred page.
I am unaware of any similar feature in Apache, and this seems
important enough to be placed on the list of discrepancies
between Apache and NCSA's server.

Implement it (the preferred choice) or document the difference
not only in differences between Apache and NCSA, but also in some of the
documentations on Access control.

(I ask that a copy of any response to this to be e-mailed to support@prado.com.%2
