I understand the HTTP spec... but ZOPE does not work that way.
I can use methods which require roles above where I logged in. The
methods used for returning the roles themselves do not correlate with ZOPE's
own actions. Therefore ZOPE has an internal inconsistency regarding user
authentication with basic HTTP authorization.

yes, I've used one or two - but I'm concerned with remedying the default
ZOPE authentication mechanism, which is broken

thanks, but your suggestion isn't applicable since the result of
AUTHENTICATED_USER.getRoles() is wrong.
