Authentication variables cannot be set in per-group customizations,
for precisely this reason (this is documented in the PmWiki.PasswordsAdmin
pages). They can only be set in local/config.php (or local/farmconfig.php).

No, we definitely don't want that. Many sites use the
per-group customizations to set skins, special markups, etc.,
and if all of the customizations for other groups get loaded simply
by referencing a page in the group, it makes things really difficult.
(And if you're doing a (:pagelist:), it would mean that all of
the customizations for all groups would eventually get loaded.)
Thus, security is all handled from the local/config.php file,
and GroupAttributes or individual page attributes.
