Close, but no cigar. (Back to the barn with you ;-)
I do not want to have any accounts at all.
I want to have the whole wiki protected by a read password which will
be issued to people as required.
I want them to have to log in with a username (which is not checked)
and the password, and I want to capture the username as their Author name.
This may sound insecure or foolish, but from the user point of view,
they will see a "standard" un/pw login form, fill it in and be able
to read and edit without having to enter anything else.
I want to avoid asking for a read password and then later (when they
are editing) asking for an Author Name.
