[pmwiki-users] Authuser Create Account

Okay, Slashdot reports a Newsforge article showcasing MediaWiki.[1]
What caught my attention was an interesing "DefaultPasswords":

    $wgGroupPermissions['*']['createaccount'] = false;[2]

The one thing that Authuser does not do is allow account creation by
default. The Htpasswdform recipe allows administration of accounts.
However, there is not yet a way for an individual to create an account
(that I am aware of). If anybody is working to remedy this, perhaps we
could have:

   $DefaultPermissions['createaccount'] = 'id:*'; # The "Vampire" setting.
