[pmwiki-users] Limiting authors to edit pages they created

I'm wondering if it is possible to limit the authors' edit right
that they can only edit the pages created by themselves? 

I've found a recipe in 'pmwiki.org' that make authors can only 
edit their own pages in the Profiles group: 'Cookbook/Edit-RestrictedProfile'
The recipe is placing the following code in 'local/Profiles.php'

<?php if (!defined('PmWiki')) exit();
## Author's name must match the page name in order to edit.
if ($action == 'edit' && ! CondAuth(@$pagename, 'admin')) {
  if ($Author && $Author != @PageVar($pagename, '$Name')) {
    $action='login'; }

Since I know nothing about php. Can the method above be easily
modified to do the work I want? Thank for help.
