Do you mean a forum like phpBB?  That's available from our hosting provider
at no extra charge, and it seems to me I've seen documentation on

forum authentication could be used for a PmWiki user-base, but the
information fairly whistled as it sailed high over my head.  Is this a
realistic, practical way to go?
