Another thing you can do is to use IP addresses on your ACLs, or allow 
anonymous read access (system:anyuser).  If the underlying data is going to be 
anonymously available via the web, then there's no reason not to allow
'system:anyuser rl'.  That will be more secure in the long run than having 
authenticated long-running daemons, and might perform ever so slightly better 
as well.
