- wiki tradition is that any word with 2 non-consecutive capital letters
triggers the creation of a link and automatic creation of the new page (that
question mark).

- it can be turned off locally by putting an exclamation mark directly in
front of the offending word

- it can be programmed NOT to follow wiki tradition at all... and I admit I
have thought of that but am loath to break with wiki tradition.

wiki login on zope is handled by zope.   Zope authentication is one of the
very nice features I like about zope.  I made mine use /etc/shadow.
Anyways, each user can be placed in groups with varying amount of rights.
So others can help me create new contributor accounts by becoming user
account managers.
