I guess it depends on where the auth info is stored and how you access it.
Not knowing too much more about it I would extend one of the classes in
filesys.py to support your access check. The ftp server and the http
default_handler both expect a 'filesystem' object. The ftp server currently
retrieves that object from an authorizer, but you could change this,
depending on whether you want to extend normal ftp auth or replace it.
