This extension http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Auto_Login_via_REMOTE_USER
requires web server authentication right?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but this means that the contents of the User Table
would have to be in the passwd file defined through the .htaccess file
.. because it passes whatever the user authenticates on the webserver with
through to the wiki/extensions scripts right?
(resulting in this not really being useful because i've got to duplicate my
user table ....)
