Thanks, Kevin!

But man, they need some technical editing.    Comma placement is critical.

user must either be the superadmin user, or belong to the admins group but must not belong to the temps group

Is much different than:

user must either be the superadmin user or belong to the admins group, but must not belong to the temps group

In the former, any superadmin gets through, in the latter nobody in temps group gets through, even if they are a superadmin.  Of course, if you're making your temps superadmins, you have a larger problem, but that's procedural not technical.

Scott, you mention a newer syntax for this directive. I'm just trying to brush
up my HTTP configuration skills, and clearly I'm behind a ways. :) Can you
point me to an example of the newer syntax?
