You bring up an interesting approach I didn't think of. In my case, checking
out the files locally and keeping them updated by a cron job is not a
problem. I think accessing local files would be faster than accessing a
remote server via HTTP. Interesting solution if you want to go lightweight
and not have to worry about maintaining a local check out. I guess what you
meant re access control is that you can use logged in user information to
grant them access to pages?
