I think the term "groups" used for authorization comes from Apache
password groups. As in:
Require group xyz
But in the context of PmWiki, I would prefer to use "roles". Just not
sure what the docs would look like explaining how to use .htgroup,
should that ever be possible.
The other alternative would be to rigorously use "authorization
group" or "wiki group" where appropriate.
