Making sure I get this right ... Moin Moin page nesting allows us to
create an arbitrary group and assign them permissions to edit that
page, as well as add other people to the group? Oh, I recall now, it's
the #acl setting ...

I'm interested in working out how to lower the barriers for the wiki,
but it's been a long time since I worked with Moin Moin - I've gotten
used to the more flat structure of MediaWiki (and generally prefer
that anyone with wiki edit access can edit any page of the wiki.)

What is the group thinking here? I may propose that we add wiki
editors to the overall ACL rather than specific areas. What now are
the advantages to controlling the ACLs on a specific area of the wiki?
