[Catalyst] fine Authentication

The best way to do this this type of fine grained authentication is to
write a plugin which watches where the users are going within the
controllers and forwards the request elsewhere if necessary (to
/page/denied for example). To do this I wrote a plugin which overloads
the execute method of Catalyst::Engine and makes the checks before the
action is executed. This is better than having the controllers 'ask'
some authenticator if user x is allowed access to that action.

If you're interested I can email you the code but not until Tuesday as
I won't have access to it until then.

Alternatively you can just put some code in the auto method of your
controller(s) which makes the checks.
