WRT REMOTE_IDENT, I want to put in a request that the variable be able
to hold standard PGP or RSA key signatures.  We almost certainly need to
define additional variables to do authentication and decryption with, but
I thought I would just get the ball rolling a little.

Who out there is already working on "authenticated" Mosaic, ie an http server
which knows to serve encrypted pages to only a select set of users whose
clients will know to decrypt them for display & interpretation?
