This can already be done in Site.AuthUser:
alice: @editors <encrypted_password>
bob: @admins <encrypted_password>
It's been proposed (but not yet implemented) that "(:crypt xyz:)"
become a replace-on-save pattern. Thus, the admin would then
be able to do something as simple as:
alice: @editors (:crypt alice_password:)
and when the page is saved it would become
alice: @editors $1$Xf7RfuOP$yTBWMaHCM29JMBN3jVd./0
If this would be of big help, I'll add it for beta20. I can
even probably give the (:crypt:) recipe as a local customization
if beta20 won't be out soon enough for you.
