Make SiteMap work with custom Authorization. According to the link below this is not something that Microsoft is currently not able to address for us.

This being the case I was curious if any of you had a possible solution for implementing a means of applying a custom authorization provider for use with the SiteMap. My specific problem is that I have a WCSF 2.0 site where module access needs to be restricted based on the group that a user is a member of.

User --> Role(s)
User --> Group(s) --> Module(s)

I was hoping that there would be a way to accomplish this with the provided WCSF 2.0 infrastructure, but I suppose alternatively I may have to roll out my own custom replacement.

Thank you for any insight you may be able to provide,

P.S. I am wanting to implement my own custom site map provider based on Jeff Prosise article.
