[jifty-devel] Using Authentication::Password and Template::Declare

Thanks for your quick response Andrew.  I am working off the latest T::D, so
the use_mason_wrapper() method is available.

This did change my output a bit.  Now my page gets redirected to
errors/requested_private_component, which it complains about since it seems
that it doesn't exist for me.  Do I have to declare wrapper to be publicly
available?  I will keep digging myself, but if you happen to know the answer
it would be appreciated.
