What I would like to see is the following.  All our users must  log  
in (Apache and SSL) before
getting to the Wiki.  So php knows the username and unix  
authorization groups. I would
like to be able to use this information to allow or prohibit access  
to certain Wiki Groups.
For example members of the "earls"  group would have access to the  
Earls.* web pages,
but others would have NO access. Similarly members of the Earls group  
would not have
access to the Peon.* web pages. These groups are really to large, and  
changing to
list the members individually.
I am new to PmWiki (and Wiki's in general) so maybe I can do that  
now, but I don't know how.
