I've been trying to come up with an idea to make this work.  The only  
one I've found so far goes like this:

The ACL in the page can be divided into two parts by a @TEMPLATE:  
marker.  When the page is read as a normal page, this marker stops  
the scan of the ACLs (at least the ACLS in the page; the usual  
acl_rights_after processing still takes place).  When the page is  
instantiated as a template, everything up to the @TEMPLATE: marker is  
removed; this becomes the ACL for the new page (if the ACL is then  
empty, the line is removed).

Is there a reason why this won't work?  If it will work, where should  
I start looking at the sources to make a fix?  I need this pretty  
urgently, so I need to get started on it now.

Thanks in advance for any help,
