      I played with doing similar things in ASP some time ago (the code, if it exists
      at all, is on a hard drive in the hands of the receiver handling the demise of
      my former employers, but if I ever get to see it again I'll share).

      I found that playing with the authentication this could cause issues with some
      tools (InterDev at least) that used authentication and expected the server to
      be handling it in the default manner.
