Well, I now have a version that does work with AuthUser:


It even works without AuthUser -- as demonstrated on pmwiki.org
(which isn't using AuthUser).  And, as far as I know, it should 
work with UserAuth.

In addition to the "who's doing what on the site" display, I'll
also be adding a "someone seems to be editing this page"
message to the edit form, so that if two people are editing a
page there'll be a nice note saying "someone else is working on it,

Comments welcomed.
