I'm just giving the finishing touches to the ablity to invite people to
a Galene group.  In short, the user will click the invite button, and
Galene will generate a link of the form:

which can be used to autojoin a group.  Unlike with the existing token
mechanism, the link will be revocable.

Whether this is allowed in a group will be configurable.  However, should
it be enabled by default?  In other words, should there be a configuration

    "allow-tokens": true

which enabled the functionality, or should there be instead a directive

    "forbid-tokens": true

which enabled the functionality?

I'm very, very tempted to enable it by default for all users: it seems to
me that the ability to create tokens is better than having users share
passwords, and, since tokens are revokable, it doesn't remove any control
from the group operator.  Do people agree?
