-By default all the views in the Django admin are protected so that only staff
-members can access them. If you add your own views to either a ``ModelAdmin``
-or ``AdminSite`` you should ensure that where necessary they are protected in
-the same manner. To do this use the ``admin_perm_test`` decorator provided in
-``django.contrib.admin.utils.admin_perm_test``. It can be used in the same way
-as the ``login_required`` decorator.

- The ``admin_perm_test`` decorator can only be used on methods which are on
- ``ModelAdmins`` or ``AdminSites``, you cannot use it on arbitrary functions.
