[] is a python list.

Don't confuse DesktopEdition = True with superuser list or with
wikiserver configuration.

If you have your user name in the superuser list, your user is a
superuser, no matter from what IP the request comes in.

But wikiserver.py by default only serves on, if you need more,
you need to configure it.

No, that's not true.
