I use a mixture.
For directories that are only supposed to be viewed by staff here we use
.htaccess files, but everything else is built around the authentication
classes in phplib which offers a huge number of authentication
methods/levels so if one user goes to a page they see one thing, but if
the admin goes there he gets a whole lot more :)
