I found an example in some 3 part slide show that uses the dispatcher
for just about everything.

that's for authentication right? maybe i didn't use the right term.
maybe permissions instead of authorization is more clear.  I'm already

Jifty::Plugin::Authentication::Password::Mixin::Model::User to handle
authentication.  I followed the instructions in the tutorial on how to
add user groups as well.
