Some time ago, in another thread, PM said he was considering these:

 (:if !equal {$PasswdEdit} "":) -- current page has an edit password
 (:if equal {$PasswdEdit} "@_nopass":) -- edit password is set to "@_nopass"

other built-in authorization groups I'm considering are

   @_nopass          no password is needed (currently "nopass")
   @_authid          person is authenticated (currently "id:*")
   @_edit            use site edit privileges
   @_admin           locked to all users except admin
   @_locked          same as @_admin

I haven't worked with AuthUser since 2.0, so I don't know whether the
authorization groups or the {$PasswdEdit} variable have been built into the
script, but if they have been or are, some of this might be useful...
