One could always put the following into Site.AuthForm:

    (:include $Group.AuthPrompt:)

Another feature of Site.AuthForm is that the default will
include a (:messages:) markup, so a per-page or per-group customization
file would be able to do

    $MessagesFmt[] = "Hint: What did uncle Jack smoke?";

and that would automatically appear only in the corresponding
pages or groups.

But yes, one could also do

    (:if match ^Family:) What did uncle Jack smoke
    (:if match ^Family.Birthdays$ :) What year was Jack born?

Site.AuthForm is likely to appear in 2.1.beta2.
