This does not seem to work under Moin (it's a bit of a baroque use),  
but I was wondering if there is some way to get it to work I haven't  
found yet.

Our site will have many pages that are immutable, and many pages that  
are writeable, so far as general users are concerned. The test site  
is using acls to enforce read-only access on the specified files, but  
it would be preferable to have readonly as the default, and to use  
acls to give write access. However, that prevents users from creating  

I created a UserTemplate file with the entry

#acl Known:read,write

In hopes that users (under the more restrictive regime) would be able  
to create pages using that template. However, that doesn't work.

Anyone know of some way to do this? That is, have pages read-only to  
general users by default, but allow those same users to create new
