At the moment I'm precreating pages, or changing Acls for existing pages. I
was hoping for a simple way to create a template for this. I could give admin
rights to everyone, since it just allows them to edit Acls, but I'd have to
change the defaults in moin_config since at the moment, I also give other
rights to those in an AdminGroup. 

I suspect that admin rights should be renamed to acl rights, since admin is
not really a superuser.
