That is a very good point; I hadn't considered those aspects. About the
only downside the possibility of account name conflict. That is, if
someone outside the project sets up an account called "Fred" and then a
project member turns up and wants "Fred" there's a problem. However it
is probably fairly unlikely to happen, and can be resolved by the
superuser if it does.

Well, no, not in this case. People not in the project are "nice to have"
as readers, but are completely non-essential. If we can accommodate
outsiders easily, we will, otherwise, they lose.

However, you've convinced me that it does make sense to have known, but
non-contributing, accounts. Now to see if I can convince the others. And
work out how groups work :-)
