OK, that's encouraging; I'd already gotten that far. Here's a more
pointed question about where I'm thinking of going, then:
Is it possible to have the default ACLs for one set of pages be
different from those of another? Something like a template? Thing is,
I suspect that the other teachers will find it to be too much trouble
if they have to deal with setting ACLs themselves (not something I want
while trying to convince them that this shiny new technology is a Good
Thing). Also, I don't want to have to manually set the ACL for any new
page a teacher creates, and I don't want a privacy-crucial ACL line to
be deleted accidentally.
It seems to me that this last requirement could be assured by disabling
admin privilege for the teachers, but that would basically be
equivalent to forcing me to set all ACLs manually, right? (Meaning
that the only solution would be to teach the other teachers how to set
This was the train of thought that led me to considering a second wiki
instance...I'm just looking for the way to do this with minimal admin

exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.
