In r19524 (bug 8712) there is added a global variable which contains the user
group. It contains the relevant usergroup as 'bot' or 'sysop'.
In case of a normal user the variable is empty, it doesn't make distinction
between a user who is just registered and a user who is registered for a long time.
On nl.wikipedia we use a script taken taken over from fr.wikipedia which
disables the save button when editting a page until the edit is previewed. It
now only checks for anonymous users, but it should be better if it can also
check for users who are not autoconfirmed.
Maybe this variable can also contain the autoconfirmed status for normal users
who haven't other user rights. So, if the variable is empty it means a normal
user who isn't autoconfirmed.
Should use effective groups rather than hardcoded (in database) groups.
Bug 8712 fixed with r19611. It should solve this bug as well.
