I agree with Sandy's suggestion about keeping the profile
pages separate from auth information, which requires a greater control.

I think that Pmwiki should come with an entire "authentication
module/package" (AuthUser + htpasswd Form + etc.) which would be disabled by
default. When enabled, it must allow for self-authentication, with an
optional "email moderator and wait", as suggested by Sandy. It would be
great to have a Userid, passwd and an email address associated with each
user account so that if required, it would be possible to use "authgroups"
to manage email notifications. This, in my opinion, would be an ideal setup.
