Just to add a bit to the potential mix, I run a PmWiki farm with several 
wikis. Two of those wikis are protected by Apache Basic Authentication 
using an htpasswd file that I maintain "by hand".

However, once inside the BA, I use PmWiki AuthUser to assign the 
usernames to authorization groups. Within the wikis, I control access 
based on authorization group. This has proved to be very flexible.

On the non-BA protected wikis I use straight AuthUser assigning both 
login accounts and authorization groups inside the wiki.
