I am currently using LoginManager to authenticate users from a MySQL 
database. I followed the tutorials and it works quite well; but there are 
other data associated with users in the database that I would like to use in 
Zope. I have found a solution but I think it is quite complicated:

- first, I added SQL_id_user (ZSQL-method) in the acl_users:

select id_user
from user
where <dtml-sqltest username column=user_name type=string>

- then, I added id_user (DTML-method) in the acl_users:

<dtml-in expr="SQL_id_user(username=username)">
  <dtml-return id_user> 

- now, when I want to get the id_user value associated with the current user, 
I need to do:

<dtml-with REQUEST>
  expr = "AUTHENTICATED_USER.id_user(

Isn't there an easier way to get the id_user value?
