Another feature request or idea.

Moin has the ability to be used for a number of different purposes e.g.

  * personal wiki
  * intranet site
  * open wiki


These sites require different sorts of behaviours in terms of security, and
user interface. In particular a simpler user interface for people who are
not authoring pages would be preferable. Could we introduce a site type
variable in the main config that could be passed to themes so they can
modify themselves for different uses. Themes could then combine roles and
site types to morph their behaviour to different circumstances.

 E.g. Owner on personal site has full wiki interface, Visitors have minimal


All best
