Well, I haven't tested timtaw yet, but as it is being called a 
wiki-extension, I guess it could do the job without too much backend access! 
Sebastian / Rob?

Of course it doesn't make sense adding all users as backend users, I would 
not do so as well!

Sure, I'd like that too ;) But seriously: Having both ways and you can 
choose either way for your documentation sounds like a good idea, but of 
course you need to stick to the one way in this case as soon as you started. 
Otherwise I see the conflicts you point out.

Related to cohiba or no-cigar extensions, it could produce a good or bad 
smelly atmosphere.. Sounds like a good idea to me ;)
