FS#414 enable user accounts with null passwords
ACL & Authentication
We decided we wanted our user accounts to all have the null string as their password.
This makes sense when the wiki is run in a protected multiuser environment where all
users are trusted (we decided that the password was an initial barrier to use/adoption).
I set up users.auth "by hand" but was stuck when Dokuwiki would automatically logout
the user the minute he tried to edit.
The following patch to auth.php seems to "fix" this, but my feeling is that maybe there
should be a configuration variable which enables this (that behavior _was_ a feature,
In the case that null string passwords are wanted, it would be nice if the
config variable (or an additional config variable) would automatically change
the registration dialog so that
all the passwords issued are null strings and the dialog itself informs
the user of this rather than (or in addition to) sending email.
