Using ACL lists to control access to second level navigators

I created a button on a main navigator, and use the formula below in the CLICK properties to grant access to the second navigator:

@If(@Name([CN];@UserName) !="John Doe" ;@False;@Command([OpenNavigator];"Server Info";1))

I need to add additional names to it and want to use ACL lists to do so instead of adding onto this formula.  What does the formula look like and can I apply it to the CLICK properties like the formula above?

Thanks a ton everyone!

The easiest thing to do is to create a role in the ACL then check the role for every group list or individual that you want to have that role capability.  The formula looks like this.
@If(@IsNotMember("[Teamleads]"; @UserRoles);
@Prompt([OK];"Authorization Failure !";"This Function is Restricted to TeamLeads Only.  You are Not Authorized for this Function.!");
@Command([OpenFrameset]; "chgmgtFrameset"))

You, of course can modify this to open navigator instead of frameset..
