I'm creating a python product - which needs to be authenticated; and I 
dont want to use any products that does not come with a clean Zope install 
- so I user Simple User Folder and define two roles admin user and 
ordinary user. I just want a user to login via login form, check username 
and password with the acl_users user list and set the user to 
AUTHENTICATED_USER if username and password is correct. Actually I just 
want to access the methods which the pop-up authenticator use when one 
does /manage.  To me it looks like validate() from AccessControl/User.py does this for 
you, but Im not 
sure how to use the method.
