For a standard /etc/password ot htpassword like file with an encrypted
password, you can set up webmin to manipulate the appropriate config file,
give the users access to "htpasswd" to generate login names nd passwords to
send in, etc., etc., etc.

If you're using Apache access, you can even hook it to an LDAP backend and
use the local network's single-sign-on passwords or other LDAP based access.
