The plan is that it will be a python "access script" the same way we did it
in pulp2. The ansible-pulp installer will configure Nginx or Apache to use
the access scripts on all installations starting with 3.3. For installs
that have another installer, e.g. Katello, the same apache config the Pulp
installer installs can be used in Katello's installer.

What do you think about this? Is this what you were asking?
