Just have to add a me too comment: This is _not_ trivial to
support anymore. Quite a bunch of code right now exists just
to support the guessing game in security=share. This used to
be shared with the valid users code, but that has been
replaced. That's why I said it would remove a bunch of
really messy code.

Any strong opinions against my share read/write user
parameter proposal? If not, then I'll take this as my plan
for the weekend or so :-)
