[arch-general] Unificate login credentials in Arch's website

I don't know if this was addressed before, I'm sorry to say this and you'll
probably hate me but it's something that get my attention: the
authentication in Arch's website is, at least, very unefficient. At worst,
it's directly against Arch's Way, I think (I'm not the best guy to say this,
just giving my first steps in Arch). Why should someone need to register at
least three times, one for the forums, one for the wiki and one for the AUR?
Shoudn't be sufficient with just one-time login/registration? And what about
editing own nick or password? You know, at any time you may want to uniform
all your passwords to a master one or just change it from the default you
get when registered.

I would like to know if there's any specific reason to have three separate
accounts for the same website sections.
