[pmwiki-users] allowing existing vbulletin users to edit a pmwiki powered wiki

I believe AuthUserDbase (or XesAuthUserDbase) will allow you to use
the vBulletin board user table. I finally got AuthUserDbase to work
(still need to publish the code), after allowing it to sit tantalizing
for a few months. In the interim, Xes co-opted the code, fixed it and
improved on it.

The implementation of AuthUserDbase I have running restricts edit
permissions to those of a certain RoleID of the Vanilla Forum. The
"standard" behavior authenticates anybody. However, there is a way to
append the SQL query to restrict by role.
