Since the beginning, I don't like the term "stduser".  For newbies it's
a source of confusion, because this user is exactly the opposite of a
standard user: it's a special user, for control purposes only.

So in 24 hours :), unless there are objections, I would:

- replace all occurences of stduser and stdpass by controluser and
controlpass in the code

- modify the doc and put a real example of a controluser (suggestion:

- to help support versions starting with 2.2.5, it would be better not
to let people use the old variables, so add a polite message "stduser
and stdpass are obsolete, please use controluser and controlpass" if we
find stduser and stdpass in the config file.
