Hi all,

Fancy a laugh at my PHP scripting skills and my nearly one week old 
experience with pmwiki? Please find attached a cookbook recipe for 
helping with an apache authenticated, pmwiki authorized user scheme.

Details in the header, but a quick description: For sites where ALL 
users are authenticated (via apache auth modules say), this module 
uses the user name to key into a permissions file, giving users 
specific permissions to none, admin, read, edit or attr a page. In 
this version page attribute passwords are also checked, so individual 
pages may still be locked down.

I use this with apache mod_auth_kerb module to authenticate against a 
windows domain from a Linux web server. It seems to work well for me, 
but suggestions are very welcome. It has no obvious support for 
groups (not sure it needs it...?) since I have not looked into or 
understood groups yet.

Thanks to James McDuffie for UserAuth (not AuthUser) from which this 
cookbook draws heavily.
