worth investigating the use of PAS and the idea of deprecating the
member/user duality altogether.  anyone else interested in this
approach?

It does sound interesting, unless the user folder all of a sudden gets overloaded with all kinds of APIs that it doesn't need for normal Zope
operation.

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.

I mean sticking Plone-only stuff onto something that's a simple user folder and should be completely agnostic of how it is used.
