I believe we generally use RPC2_MakeMulti as a wrapper around
RPC2_MultiRPC. The security-level is defined while setting up the
connection to the server in userent:Connect() ( When the user
has tokens an authenticated secure connections is created, otherwise an
unauthenticated unsecured connection is set up.

Every call to a servergroup is preceded with vol->GetMgrp(uid) which
returns the (possibly authenticated) connection for that user.
