At present, no, there's not really a way to do this.  PmWiki doesn't
really have a concept of "page ownership".  

I suppose we could come up with a special identifier or group to
be put in the password field that means "AuthId same as page Name",
but I'm not sure what it should look like.

The only ideas I have at the moment, neither of which I like:



Using this last one might confuse people into thinking that page variables
work in passwords (which isn't the case).
