[Moin-user] Ways to change login/registration/prefs pages?

The addition in Moin 1.5 of a "logout" button was a big help. However, 
set testing has shown that our users are still confused by the 
relationships between account creation, login, and setting preferences, 
and the fact that some of these are done on the same page. I attempted 
to copy the markup from the "main" login/account creation/preferences 
page and modifying it to see if I could just get a "New Account 
Registration" page, but got nowhere. My goal is to have three completely 
separate pages: One for account creation, one for logging in, and one 
for setting preferences. I'd prefer not to go into the moin source to 
hack it, but probably will, if for nothing else than to add some more 
formatting and inline comments to the existing pages. (For example, I 
might put fields addressing different topics into a table with cells of 
different backgrounds.) However, I'd prefer to do what I can in a way 
that doesn't require redoing things when I update to the next version of 
Moin. Any suggestions on the best way to proceed? Perhaps I should write 
three new macros? If so, where in the moin code should I look to find 
where the current prefs/login page is generated--it wasn't clear to me 
from looking at the markup for the page exactly where the markup came from.
