The cmsmode recipe uses some simple code to prevent users from accessing
such pages directly, while still allowing read access for includes and
searchs. Is it foreseeable that such a page attribute could be added to
allow an easier way for admins to do this kind of organizing?
This is why we have per-page passwords and authorization.

I agree. An easy enable/disable would alleviate all of my concerns. More
than anything, I simply have a different view of organization, which I
always implement anyway. My main concern was that I should be able to
exercise that control post-implementation of the handy new features
proposed, because the future of PmWiki is bright indeed!
