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?
