	But then all the data is shared between SeqWeb users,
and is world readable if the server is not closed. If I manage
two institutes (I have, and I have licences to :)), I want to keep
some of the data protected (at least the data form the two different
institute) because some of this data is patented or private.

	Let me know how the user can use seqweb in such conditions?
