Will compatibility with .htgroups be possible? It would be easy to
maintain a file like this
editors: SomeUser SomeSecondUser
admins: SomeUser SomeThirdUser
and be able to use group:editors or group:editors,uploaders as "passwords".
One change in .htgroups could be equivalent to changing attributes on
many PmWiki pages.
This is especially important for sites that already use .htgroups.
