The ?action=crypt is handled somewhat specially, in that it
doesn't bother to check permissions on any page before being
able to run it.  There didn't seem to be much point in
limiting authorization for it, as it's not really information
that needs protecting (afaict).

That said, if we really feel that it needs authorization
controls, I can add it easily enough.
