By "groups" here are you referring to "groups of pages" (i.e., WikiGroups)
or "groups of authors"?  authuser.php already has the ability
to control access to WikiGroups by individual users.

What features does the web-based management panel need?
Is it an "admin-only" interface, or do visitors need the ability
to use it as well (e.g., to create accounts, recover lost passwords,


I've summarized some ideas about this "solution" and could post it to a page on PmWiki.org. Suggestion on where to add it, something like PermissionsByGroupsDev? Or would you rather see it in an email... where-ever is fine.
