$DefaultPasswords['upload'] = '';

This probably belongs in the docs somewhere.

Page passwords are stored in the individual page files; group passwords
are stored in the GroupAttributes page.

They're intended for two different audiences -- the Passwords page is
intended for authors who wish to protect a page and describes what can be
done through ?action=attr, while the PasswordsAdmin page is intended for 
site administrators and describes how things work at the site configuration 
level.  Combining them might tend to confuse authors who aren't admins.  

Maybe better is to have PasswordsAdmin include an explicit reference 
that says "before reading this, be sure you've read PmWiki.Passwords"?
