I like the idea of being able to edit the sidebar right away.
My only concern (and it is small) is having to explain the concept of
"nopass" to a newbie admin if all they want to do is protect the sidebar.
It is a bit convoluted. Perhaps there could be a bit of script magic in
config.php like $EnableSidebarPassword = 1, such that with no config.php,
the sidebar would not require a password.
And to spread the joy a bit further, what should the default protection
state be for pages such as RightBar, PageTopMenu and PageFootMenu????
