Yes with bfg. for example....

gives the details for setting up a repoze.who authenticationpolicy
(though I think I could use the remote user one too)



but the callback arg doesn't make sense if you already have a
GroupSource and PermissionSource configured via repoze.what. But not
putting a callback in makes the policy assume the user belongs to no
groups. I think repoze.what ties permissions to groups, so if user
belongs to no groups then no permissions? Furthermore, I don't have a
callback to put there, it's all config driven.

As far as I could tell, repoze.what doesn't seem to provide a way to
get at the groups for the current request, but I could be wrong here.
But even if I could get the groups back, how would I wire in the
PermissionSource for acls?

I still feel like I'm missing something obvious. But I was hoping to
get this working because I rather like having the perms configured in
the zcml rather than in decorators/predicates on specific functions.

Other than that, thank you to those responsible for bfg. I'm really
digging it despite these little hurdles.
