I'm working on a site nearing completion which uses Books and  
book_access for a case similar to yours, though without quite as much  
granularity. We've been quite happy with book_access. If you pursue a  
more fine-tuned system for permissions within a book outline, let's  
get a group going and see what we can come up with, as I think it's  
something my clients would be interested in.

It looks like the "menu_access" suite of modules has quite a bit of  
duplication with other modules, especially nodeaccess (note the lack  
of an underscore). I'm kind of confused by the description, as it  
seems like you can provide per-menu-item permissions, though those  
should usually be calculated on a per-path basis automatically.  
Hopefully any useful features can be merged in to other more popular
