[pmwiki-users] wildcard user name in authuser

I have a new wiki in my farm that needs to be protected by a read 
password. All users will share the password.

When a user first enters the site, I want to present a login screen 
asking for a user name and password.

Since the password is shared, *any* user name should be accepted. I 
want the username that is entered (authid, I think) to be used to set 
the Author name on any edits.

How do I do this with PmWiki 2.1.3?
