Found a promising class in /booklet/home.jar, called CollectionDisplayController
Unfortunately my java experience is too limited. Ixtab, would you be interested in helping out with this tweak? I've asked around, demand for a clean solution for password protecting collections definitely exists.
This is certainly the right class to look at (or at least, to start looking at). However, I think there is a more fundamental issue: books (or content, or items, whatever you want to call it) are independent from collections. In other words, an item can be part of 0 or more collections. It can be reached through the home screen directly, or indirectly through any of the containing collections...

I don't know what you're really looking for, but if you want to control access to specific items (contained in a collection or not), you'd probably want this "access control" on the item itself, not on the collection. Or did I get something wrong?
