As far as AuthUserDBase/XESAuthUserDBase -- I haven't had a chance to  
move towards ADODB yet.  I've come down with a rash of customers this  
week, so I'm busy recovering and fulfilling project orders.

Should it let up, I plan to move AuthUserDBase to ADODB, then  
integrate the XESAuthUserDBase functions back into the original as  
optional.  After that, I work on some way of pulling in groups.  Then  
an admin interface.

I have a script that appears to be working that pulls in vBulletin  
groups to PmWiki.  I'm waiting for Rodney to doublecheck whether it's  
working for him before adding it as a recipe on PmWiki.org

Principles from the vBulletin script, which is not generic enough,  
could be used for creating a group-to-wiki management portion, to  
behave somewhat similarly to the current AuthUserDBase (in that it  
would pull from groups created in some other program)...  or side  
recipes such as the vBulletin recipe can be created instead -- such  
as compatibility with Xoops groups, or Mambo, Joomla, Moodle,  

And of course a stand-alone edition for adding group management via  

Still, paying my bills becons...
