Peter:  That looks like a cool recipe! Would it be easy to create a
version that would only work for specified wikigroup(s)?  On many of
my sites I have a site-wide, user password that I would NOT want
displayed in the manner of this recipe, but I could want a public
password on certain publicly-editable pages.

That is, as I read it, your recipe defaults to displaying a password,
except when over-ridden.  I'd like the opposite case, with defaults to
NOT displaying the password, except when desired.
