SWAT has the following access controls:

1) passwords
2) it obeys the global smb.conf "hosts allow" and "hosts deny" settings
3) it's launched via inetd so you can easily use tcpwrappers if you
   want to

Note that if you change the "hosts allow" and "hosts deny" settings
from within SWAT then it is _very_ easy to deny yourself access! Then
you need to fix it by hand editing smb.conf.

Jeremy, want to add this to the SWAT man page?
