Thanks Fred - list updated.

Ya gotta love UNIX, where else do you wonder whether
you can kill a zombie spawned by a daemon's fork?

Fred, have you made any progress on #792
("security: CLI should require authentication if HTTP does")

If not, would Slim consider accepting a patch (from me?)
that would close #792?

Dean, it'd be a big help if you could locate that old 5.4.x
patch email that I lost when my laptop drive crashed. ;-)
Otherwise, I'd be happy to recode something against the SVN code.

For those who haven't seen my code/suggestion before, the basic
idea is that if you require user/password authentication for the
web UI, SlimServer would require user/password auth for the CLI,
too. There'd be a new CLI command like

login user:password

and the CLI would echo back something like "login required" (if web
user/password auth were required) until the user authenticated with
the "login" command.
