I'm looking to further restrict access using the node_access table as 
well.  I only want to allow the creation of certain node types if  1) 
they don't require a parent to exist or 2) I can tell from the query 
params/environment/etc which node is the parent.  Failing both of these, 
I don't want them to appear on the "create content" list.

Can you think oa another way to do this?
