Sorry for the delayed response, my real job was keeping me busy today :)

I'd prefer to do it in moin_config.py because that way I get it fully
integrated, but yes I understand that I can do that.

I have read that, but it's short on details, and I'm not a good enough
Python programmer to understand quite how the security class works.

Could an example code block be provided in which a test for HTTP_COOKIE
or the security policy test would enable a new set of configuration

I tried adding a second version of the sitename variable in this section
and it didn't change what displayed on the web site.

if 1:
    allowed_actions = ['AttachFile']

    from MoinMoin.security import Permissions
    class SecurityPolicy(Permissions):
        edit = 1
        delete = 0

        def __init__(self, user):
            self.user = user
            self.edit = self.edit and user.valid
            sitename = 'test site'
