Shouldn't be very hard to implement; I think we can probably get away
with simply wrapping the update actions and sidebar with

    <div py:if="not tg.identity.anonymous">

I've been trying to get a huge bodhi upgrade out the door, but keep
finding myself just trying to squeeze in "just one more feature".

I'll get RSS feeds and anonymous access working after I get this other
stuff released.
