Simon, those seem to refer to a site-wide password for page actions,
etc, which I don't' want to do with 'one' password
all I want is this:
admin (myself) can do everything
a limited group of users can 'edit' everything, create pages, delete them, etc
'the world' cannot edit/modify anything, to them wiki works like a
regular static webpage
