Okay. But you have to make sure that the page source is protected too.
?action=source with same rights as ?action=edit (or better admin!!).

Here is a conditional for plain text password checks inside a wiki

$Conditions['authpw'] = 'NoCache(end(@$GLOBALS["AuthPw"])==\$condparm)';

then you can use conditionals like

(:if authpw abcdefg:)(:redirect ClientA:)
(:if authpw hijklmn:)(:redirect ClientB:)
