Well, managing user groups will be handled through the Site.AuthUser
page itself ... to add "alice" to the @editors group, we write
one of:

    alice: @editors
    @editors: alice

I haven't decided how far I'm going to take user management in the core.
My intent is that someday there will be a separate Site.AuthPasswords
page that will contain registration information, along with
an ?action=passwd that enables someone to add/change/recover a 
password.  The format of entries in Site.AuthPasswords will be


where the optional email_addr field is used for password recovery.
