Not at all.  First, most of the scripts included in stdconfig only
set values for variables that haven't already been set by local.php.
Second, you can always get the behavior you've just described by
doing include_once("scripts/stdconfig.php") in the beginning or 
middle of local.php.  Or, you can just include the search.php script
at the beginning of local.php and then make whatever changes you want.

Well, this is really a matter of preference and philosophy.  In general,
PmWiki takes the wiki-standard approach that all things are open (e.g., 
pages are editable/readable by anyone) and it's up to the admin to 
decide what should be closed/restricted.

You could also add it to the Cookbook--it may be a useful
cookbook script.
