I just tried to create an AdminGroup page with the following directive:

    #acl MarvinHumphrey:read,write All:read

We don't need to lock down the whole wiki -- just individual pages.  

In theory, we could go back to Infra every time that a new PMC member wants
such karma.  But what I was thinking was that infra could grant admin
privileges to AdminGroup once; then we could manage membership in AdminGroup
ourselves by editing the content of <>.

However, I'm speculating about this having only perused the documentation.
I'm not sure I've got the mechanism exactly right.
