The default install only listens on localhost, doesn't it? So I wouldn't
have thought that would be an issue.

IN fact,  now I think about it, if you're using this on windows then unless
people are connecting on the same computer, you'll need to install full moin
to provide wiki access as moin.exe only listens on localhost.

http://moinmoin.wikiwikiweb.de/FeatureRequests/DisableUserCreation gives
some neat ideas if you have a full moin install. The one that seems closest
to what you're asking for is to assign new users to a default group with
only read access and then manually review new user accounts to add them to a
read/write group.
