Interchange supports this, but there had been no UI support for administering
the table_control hash in the access table.

Basically, you can define an "owner_field" where the username of the logged-in
user must match that field for them to edit the record.

I had been meaning to do this for some time, but I finally got around to
it because of your message. I just committed it to CVS -- the owner_field
is now fully supported in the access_permissions manager, and owner_field
is honored in the item/database select lists. (I didn't do merchandising
yet, perhaps I never will. 8-)
