antique exterior french doors?

I LOVE the look of antique french doors with the true divided lights and I would like to put a set in my soon-to-be sunroom/breakfast nook. Has anyone put in antique french doors? I think I may have to retrofit them with additional security? And find a way to make them more weather efficient, maybe with storm doors? How did you address these? Are there any other issues I should consider? To get equivalent new doors that are more energy efficient, I would have to pay a fortune!
