That is what I gathered from the "visits login_path" statement in
David's example. Still, I am interested in finding out what other ways
are possible to test for session authentication status and how implement
them, if only to assure myself that they are not the way I want to do
this. I have yet to unload a lot of baggage retained from previous
I am also trying to gain a comfort level with the authlogic gem. That
desire is in part driving this quest.
