By itself, the PmWiki User oriented security system
(http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/AuthUser) is able to handle
credentials coming from external sources, and noticeably coming from
.htpasswd/.htgroup files, ie. the regular credential storage files
used by apache web servers. Being able to use them is a way to have
synced authentications between some wiki content and other protected
web locations, but nothing prevent you to use it only for wiki

You should then perhaps have a look at this recipe:
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/HtpasswdForm, which provides
convenient tools to handle these files contents, both at user and
administrative levels.

FTR, having a look at the mailing-list archives, you'd easily see that
the zap recipe has born as a derivative work from this recipe (and
some others) and has been more or less rapidly abandoned by its
original author who preferred to leave the community, borrowing most
of PmWiki concepts and re-implement them in his own engine (so you
shouldn't expect many help from him).
