I'm clearly doing something wrong here, since I cut-n-pasted the above into my
config.php, then put the variables into my template, only to have the
variables show up like any text (i.e., the "$PageHasReadPassword" text shows
up, not the value).

If I'm betraying my PHP ignorance here and doing something utterly goofy,
please forgive me.
