I prefer "(1) Leave it as is" the most.

My second choice would be "(2) Add HTTP authentication" This would
deal with the spammers/vandals, and we could publish the password (say
OVC/OVC) widely, but not in a way accessible to bots.

In my mind, "(3) Access control" comes in a VERY distant third. It's
very close to being an anti-Wiki.

In any case, definitely don't setup (3) on python-hosting.com. I want
to leave that as a real Wiki either way. If it's use is deserted,
there's not much I can do... but at least the resource can remain
available for open participation.
