I need to implement an API for my web app but i had some questions
diving into the code for it.  I was hoping to get some help from you
experience individuals and rails rock stars.

1.  Is there a way to add authentication/login so api methods cant
without proper credentials?  Mainly, I want to be able to track activity
from different people using the api and also want to keep out scriptors
might add bad content through my api.  I think basecamp api has this,
i'm not sure how to implement.

2.  I have not yet updated to Rails 1.1 yet (i will soon), but does this
change anything in regards to whether or not to use AWS?  I saw Jamis's
article on respond_to stuff but i wasnt sure how it would work with an

3.  I read the manual on about aws.  however i'm having trouble
deciding which dispatching approach to use.  I want to use the one that
fastest to implement but is also most flexible to soap, xmpl-rpc, rest

Any help and insights would be greatly appreciated.
