Oh, please don't.
This is absolutely nothing you should try to hack into Rygel. This needs
to be implemented system-wide as a simple firewall/profile selection
thing, possibly in networkmanager where you can choose from three simple
profiles ("home", "work", "cafe", i.e. trusted, semi-trusted, not
trusted at all, and whateever other profile an admin might want to add
in addition to those). You certainly don't seperate subsystems that
enable/disable rygel and apache+webdav+avahi independently.
Also, the ESSID is unsuitable for authentication.
We don't do this for g-u-s/apache either.
