There are brains for sql, I'm wondering if there are better ways for

check out authentication source. also, check out all the docs in the xuf ta ball. iirc, there's a faq for this..

I use SimpleUserfolder to authenticatate against postgres. Its easy to
add addional user information. Heres a short version of how this
similar product works:
a) you store authentication data in an SQL table (or anywhere thats
persistent).
b) you write a handful of scripts to satisfy Zope's authentication
machinary (examples are provided).
c) you can obtain additional user information by calling your SQL
tables with userID, eg obtain their phone, fax and socials - or right
after authentication you can stuff the users details into SESSION.

All you need to do is configure a property source.

You can store properties in the ZODB or in SQL, or pretty much anywhere.
