But there is one problem,
if I need to protect a route which is a file - lets say an image, than 
the file is rendered anyway.
I looked on Dancer::Plugin::Auth::Htpasswd and it uses 
'before_file_render' hook to ensure that the file is not rendered.
Would it be possible to implement a similar feature in D::P::A::E ?

or is there another way to define this hook using Auth::Extensible 
keywords ?

I tried to use something like that:

hook 'before_file_render' => sub {
but that didn't work for me.

Thanks a lot,
