An "I forgot my password, please send by mail" would also be very

And a "last logged in" field to detect zombie records.

HtpasswdForm allows form based administration, but lacks the email
confirmation and the mandatory connection of an account to an email

The mail address is also useful to contact people if needed.

too complicated. I would prefer a lightweight solution.
