This form is hard coded in pmwiki.php in function PmWikiAuth (near the
end of the file). It's name is 'authform', so you may be able to use
this with css styling. Or redefine the $AuthPromptFmt variable in
config.php, using the existing one from the function as a starter,
but not calling SDV:

$AuthPromptFmt = array(&$PageStartFmt,
   "<p><b>$[Password required]</b></p>
     <form name='authform' action='{$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']}' method='post'>
       $[Password]: <input tabindex='1' type='password' name='authpw' 
         value='' />
       <input type='submit' value='OK' />\$PostVars</form>
       <script language='javascript' type='text/javascript'><!--
         document.authform.authpw.focus() //--></script>", &$PageEndFmt);
