Both shouldn't be a problem (but because of the different cases, it will 
make writing the theme a bit more extensive).

If you start that development now, maybe do it for moin 1.3devel / beta. 
You can also do it for 1.2, but there might be some minor changes 
necessary for 1.3 and 1.2.4 will be the last 1.2.x release.

In the theme object (see __init__ of it), you have self.request and via 
that, you can query like this:

if self.request.user.valid: ... # user is known (logged in)

if self.request.user.may.write(d['page_name'): ... # user may edit this page

BTW, Nir is working on a really nice "aluminium" theme. Maybe you want 
to work together with him finishing and modifying it? Some theme 
adapting to ACLs could be of common interest (we don't need to show 
actions the user is not allowed to do anyway).

Hope that helps.
