[Moin-user] Templates v. ACLs

Hi, moin-users,

I have a problem with templates.  The problem is that the ACL I want  
on the page  as a template is not the same as the ACL I want on page  
that's generated from the template.

In particular, I want one group to be able to edit the template and  
have the template publicly readable, but when the template is  
instantiated, I want only the page owner to be able to edit the page  
and have the page private (not publicly readable).

I've thought about this, and I don't see any easy way to do it, so  
I'm asking the combined wisdom of the list to see if there's a way.

Currently, we're hand-editing the ACL (with a text editor on the page  
file) after the page is instantiated, but that's not going to scale.   
We really need some way of applying the ACL automatically.

If anyone has any suggestions or insight, I'd appreciate it.  I'm  
willing to make changes to the moin source, if that's what it takes.
