I can't answer these questions. I can only refer you to the rt queue discussion:

I didn't see creating a separate app and securing it at the server level as being a big deal (for me, your mileage may vary). It seemed easy enough that I wasn't terribly inclined to look further at potential security holes by integrating AutoCRUD directly (I'm very concerned about security for this app and if I see an easy route to better security, I'm going to take it).  If you want "all or nothing" AutoCRUD, this may not be an issue. If you desperately need fine-grained control, it could be complicated.  Again, see the RT discussion.
