So, the following code (in a python product ;-) should get me a
persistent reference to the user that I can store, say, in an SQL
database:

from AccessControl import getSecurityManager,Owned

the_current_user_path = Owned.ownerInfo(getSecurityManager().getUser())

Which leaves me with one other question ;-)

How do I turn the_current_user_path into a User object which I can use
in the following:

print the_user.getUserName()
print the_user.getRoles(an_object)

cheers,

Chris
