I started in that direction, and then realized that the only way that
can work is if the Site.AuthUser page is loaded and processed on 
every access to PmWiki.  As things stand now the Site.AuthUser page only
needs to be loaded and processed when someone enters a username and
password, which is a lot more efficient.
