[thelist] user-secure photos?

I shouldn't have used the word "admin" perhaps...

The idea is for me to set up something that the non-techie site owner  
can use.  He needs to be able to upload files and set them up for  
people to be able to view.

Basically, he's a vehicle broker, and would like to be able to show  
people cars without making those images public.  Nothing terribly  
high-security -- if some hacker-type is set on seeing them, it's no  
huge deal....

I'm thinking about modifying blog software, as the "post" format  
might be conducive to the type of image posting he wants.  Not sure  
how to integrate the user/security element into that, however.
