Oh.  If you want to restrict an action to specific authorizations,
use $HandleAuth.  For example, to restrict ?action=data to people
with edit permissions, use:

    $HandleAuth['data'] = 'edit';

If you want to create a custom authorization evel called 'data',
and then restrict ?action=data to that level, use:

    ## Create a 'data' authorization level
    $DefaultPasswords['data'] = '*';

    ## Add 'passwddata' as a page attribute:
    $PageAttributes['passwddata'] = '$[Enter new data password]:';

    ## Set ?action=data to require 'data' authorization
    $HandleAuth['data'] = 'data';
