As I understand it, each user and group is actually a page text var,
which means they have to be in the first column of the line, and no
spaces, etc., followed by a colon (:).

I struggled for quite a while with AuthUser until I finally dug in and
figured it out. Most definitely the quck start guide was a huge help.
