We don't have access to the list of registered email addresses on
cocoon-* lists, and I doubt that will happen any time soon - there's
some privacy issues involved with that, too.

Pier, do you have any opinion about this?

I'm thinking along the lines of adding some container-based
authentication around Edit.jsp, and some smallish webapp so that people
can register an email address (= user name) / password. Does anyone has
something like that laying around? Use cases:

  * enter email address -> generated pwd gets send to you
                        -> address & pwd are stored in db
  * you can log into that app
                        -> change pwd
                        -> drop your registration data
  * that same database is used for container-based authentication around

What do you guys think?
