i don't understand what you mean by overloading the user folder w/ "all kinds of APIs". i'm not proposing any additions to the user folder at all. i'm talking about a custom user class, along w/ custom user factory, authentication, and user property decoration plugins that move the behaviour that is currently in the member object down into the user object. no additional features, less complexity, more flexibility. -r _______________________________________________ Zope-CMF maillist - Zope-CMF@lists.zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-cmf See http://collector.zope.org/CMF for bug reports and feature requests
