In the documentation of the AUTHORIZER parameter, it states:

AUTHORIZER parameter ==  AUTHORIZER=authServList[:connMap]
       authServList  ==  authServ[,authServ]* | & | *
           authServ  ==  authHost[/portNum]
           authHost  ==  hostName | hostAddr
            connMap  ==  ProtoList:dstHostList:srcHostList
                    --  default: none
                    --  restriction: applicable to Telnet, FTP and NNTP

... what do the words "restriction: applicable to Telnet, FTP and NNTP"
mean?  Does it mean that only Telnet, FTP and NNTP can be authenticated?
Does it mean that only Telnet, FTP and NNTP can be used as the authentication
protocols, but HTTPS users can be authenticated?

For example, if I were to set up an FTP server that could authenticate
users, could I write this:

	AUTHORIZER="authserver:ftp:*:*:*"

... to get users authenticated against the FTP server on authserver?

What is the syntax of ProtoList, and what does it mean?  Is it the protocol
that is being authenticated, or the protocol that is being used to authenticate
users?
