How would you use a chained dispatch to solve a problem like this?  
Something that needs to be checked before allowing anything else 
(besides logging in) to happen and if so force them to a specific page?  
A simple example would help.  I'm still have it in my head that this 
logic should be done in the root controller since it would supersede any 
action in my other controllers.
