Hi Ski [ex-co-worker with my ex-wife],

All you need to do is give the contractor local admin privileges.  For
example, add this header to your SpecialStuff page [and remove
linefeeds, I couldn't get it all on one line in email].

 #acl SpecialStuff/AdminGroup:admin,read,write,delete,revert
  SpecialStuff/ReadWriteGroup:read,write SpecialStuff/ReadGroup:read All:none

The "All:none" is just an example, you can change that to "All:read"
if your access is less restrictive.

Make appropriate group SubPages (in CategoryGroup), and add your
contractor to the list on the SpecialStuff/AdminGroup page.

All SubPages will inherit permissions, so make sure he creates
sub-pages and not top-level links.  If you need to selectively create
pages elsewhere, you will need to add the same #acl line there before
they can administer it.
