Not quite that easy

But not that hard either, its already all there in all the scripts,  
all you need to do is take a look at the scripts you want passworded,  
for eg

In 2.2.9 line  34

You will see
  authnotrequired => 1,

Flick that to 0, and bang, you will be asked for a password on that  

If you really wanted to, and this would be cool, you could make a  
system preference, that then each of the scripts could check, and  
turn authnotrequired to 0  if its switched on.

Theres only a few opac scripts to touch, and adding the syspref  
shouldnt take long.
