I don't like any of these, as I don't see the point in a Captcha on
the edit form. Most wikis I guess trust their editors enough not to
require them to input captcha values. Often the edit access is
restricted by password.
I see a value in a captcha on apage with a form, where submitting is
possible by site visitors.
I recommend to advise admins who want to use the Captcha recipe
to add something like this to config.php, for wikis with edit
$EnablePostCaptchaRequired = 1;
$EnablePostCaptchaRequired = 0;
