But if you've got Apache ssl as well then it's more secure.

The problem I've found is that you can't put this in the httpd.conf unless
it is wrapped in a <Directory></Directory> directive

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Members Only"
AuthUserFile /path/to/.htpasswd
require valid-user

And the virutual host doesn't have a directory. If I were to place this in
the zope root then I would password protect all the sites. I only wan't to
password protect one etc.
