Minor question: If you give a separate password for a page, e.g.
Site.Help, this password will override the "group password"?
Can you give an 'empty' password separately for a page, in case I'd like
Site.Help to be editable without needing a password?
(Note: This doesn't really matter to me... I've password protected all
pages with a simple password just to avoid spam)

I think the main thing is that we write the above in big letters for
people who are upgrading within the v2-series. Then we should make sure
that this works flawlessly, leaving them a way to do the transition to
Site/ when/if they feel like it.
Similarly, when upgrading from v1, then it should by default try and use
'Site/' and it should work as smoothly as possible.
For other cases, e.g. in my case where I'm already using Site/', I'll just
have to accept that I'll need to do some manual fiddling to get it working
- that's what you get when using a beta-version.
