RSS in an editor's only site

I've got an editor's only site with syndication turned on for the home 
page and discussion group messages but without it being sent to

Should a newsreader be able to get the rss feed? How can cookies be 
authenticated. They are logged in on the browser, Safari, but I 
wouldn't expect Newswire to be able to detect that.

Ranchero Software says:

"NetNewsWire can read sites that use http authentication -- but I don't 
know if the RSS feeds for editors-only sites are available that way. 
(They may require a cookie instead.)

"I vaguely remember that at some point UserLand made it possible to 
read them via http authentication, but I'm not positive. I'd recommend 
asking them about it."

So I am.
