[Gluster-users] Password *and* IP authentication

When I set up a server volume with this configuration with both IP and 
user/password authentication, access to the volume is permitted based on the 
source IP address only.  

Is there a way of requiring both IP address AND user/password authentication?  
(IP authentication is insecure, since it can be spoofed from the local 
network, but login authentication is worse, since it can be used.)  (I 
suspect the answer is no at the moment, judging by the code...)

As a more general question, can multiple authentication methods be required 
for a server?  

# config snippet ...

volume server
  type protocol/server
  option transport-type tcp/server     
  subvolumes brick

  option auth.ip.brick.allow # Allow access to "brick" volume
  option auth.login.brick.allow john
  option auth.login.joe.password bigsecret
