[Moin-user] Re: Basic HTTP Auth under Twisted/Moin

Under Apache I'd have a lot of options, including a simple
AuthUserFile.  I could go down that road in theory, but the site is up
and stable under Twisted and at this stage it would be a fair amount
of change at this point to get all the necessary parties involved to
reconfigure the server to use Apache.

I have tried to look up the answer with the Twisted folks as well, but
judging from what I see in the MoinMoin.server.twisted.py code, it's
not a basic Twisted webserver which is being used, but rather a
customized TCPReactor, which is why I thought I'd try asking my
question here first.

Thanks anyway.
