PmWiki doesn't have the cleartext passwords anywhere -- it
only stores encrypted versions. AuthList is primarily intended
to indicate what pages and groups have restrictions set upon
them, but it doesn't provide a way to recover passwords
(because PmWiki itself doesn't have a way to recover the cleartext).
