Well, then stay tuned for Aida/Scribo :) Aida/Scribo will be a CMS core 
and plugins for wikis, websites, blogs, forums, ...

I think user authentication is better served with web frameworks on top 
of Swazoo, because it is tightly connected with authorization, access 
rights, session management and similar.

We actually thought about that when we started developing Swazoo but 
didn't agree on a way how to do that. And time showed that it was better 
that authentication stayed out of Swazoo.
