[pmwiki-users] Require extension to user database cookbook

Whether I write it myself, or find someone who already has something
written, I need a cookbook recipe that:
allows users to register to a PmWiki install
emails said user with a validation link back to the wiki
validates the users
optional - email the admin that a new user has registered
I also want the module to handle user groups -- the users would be
auto-added to the "default" user group. The wiki admin can then add
groups to specific users as needed.
I am about to start writing this functionality into
authuser_dbase-1.0.02.php and it will probably be a pretty extensive
authuser_dbase-1.0.02.php only handles a database that has username/
password. So this obviously requires an extended database.
If someone has written something and can provide it, I would be
eternally grateful. If someone has a good suggestion for how to
handle groups in the database -- as far as I can tell PM only added
support for groups from Apache -- I would also be appreciative. For
now I'm considering having it write up a .htgroups formatted file
each time a user is validated and hooking AuthUser to point to said
file. Feels like a hack -- heck, it is a hack.
So, any takers? Any suggestions?
Thank you, and on to my next customized bit of code,
Oh, have you no pity, this thing I do I do not deny it. All through
the smiles, crooked as the danger. Do not deny. I know in my mind I
would leave you now; if I had the strength to I would leave you up to
your own devices. Will you not talk? Can you take pity, I don't ask
for much -- but won't you speak -- PLEASE....
