Until we release 1.2, EVERYTHING is in potential flux.  We *are*
approaching a level of stability that will allow our tech writer
to start documenting things for future snapshots, however you
cannot depend on anything at this time.  Remember, 1.2 is
unreleased software and we do not recommend using it on
production servers until we do...

That said, if you do things like deny access to administrators,
then things will break.  Hopefully the changes to the web
interface I am working on now will yield more useful error
messages and/or authentication requests, however we will
never be able to successfully handle every possible
