That sounds like a nice thing to do.

Isn't this the kind of control that the web-server (e.g. apache)
should be handling ?
Use a rewrite rule to catch all in-coming requests and re-route
them to the software that will construct the pages to be served.

Alternatively, you can control password-access using the .htaccess
file for the directory hierarchy where the static pages reside.
LaTeX2HTML does not build .htaccess files, just the web-pages,
since typically you would not assign access on a job-by-job basis.

Hope this helps,
