The -> is put in front of the examples so they will NOT create users and
passwords (otherwise when you activate AuthUser anyone could enter an
example user and password). The -> also makes the examples indented.

To create real users and passwords, enter the username starting at the
beginning of a line (without a -> ).  Just like the examples, but no -> or
leading space.
