[jifty-devel] tutorial talks of overriding default _elements/nav

but if you take a look at the _elements/nav it says:

%# Navigation frobbing now handled in Dispatcher plugins
%# This exists for backwards compatibility 

Is there an example of using the dispatcher to draw the nav?

Which brings up another question on which I was hoping I could get some
clarification.  I'm having a bit of difficulty understanding the
implementation of authorization throughout an application.  Am I correct
in that most authorization could feasibly be placed into the dispatcher?
or should it be placed into templates and action code?

Is there any documentation on all the various uses of the dispatcher?

Sorry for all the questions but I'm still struggling through my first
app with jifty.  I'm evaluating it as a possible replacement for a
proprietary "framework" we use at the office.  I'm implementing a
personal side project I've been wanting to write for a few years.
