I will probably upgrade my odd layered site to a new auth method to
test it out. As far as I know, my nested-privilege wiki model is not
supported in PmWiki 2.x. However I would like to upgrade.
The idea was that there were 4 layers ---say 1 is the highest privilege
-- then anyone authenticated to edit layer 1 should be able to also
edit layers 2-4... 4 could be a publicly accessible layer or have a
password, but no one can get to 2 unless they have the privilege.
Anyway, it's a site I am willing to have individual logins for. Being
able to assign users to user-groups, with user-groups having set
privileges works, as does authenticating individual users -- as long as
the access-levels can be set at the wiki-group level
-- As such, whether it's a sql database or htaccess matters less to me
as I would have to set up the entire password system anyway. No to
LDAP for me though -- don't see myself bothering with that anytime
