[pmwiki-users] UserAuth Enhancements

I modified UserAuth to allow the definition of groups and assign individual
users to groups. Abilities can still be assigned to individual users as well
but the introduction of user groups allows for easier maintenance when there
are many users defined. I followed the lead of the new AuthUser module and
user groups start with the @ symbol. The administration page now contains
two tables, one for users and one for user groups but both are stored in the
same htpasswd file.
There is a new conditional variable member that allows to check against a
specific group membership
(:if member @editors:) conditional text (:ifend)
Another change I made is the addition of a Full Name field. Instead of just
having a username that is used to authenticate there is now the possibility
to add the full name of a user, or a group description. The script can read
the old htpasswd file and will convert it on the first modification.
Some minor changes to make UserAuth compatible with PmWiki 2.1 finish the
list of my changes.

Please let me know if you find any problems as I have done only limited
testing so far.
