Not a problem, although I suspect you're going to be disappointed with
the answer. ;-)

The domain auth feature was turned off by default because it's fairly
severely broken, as you've found out.  Unfortunately, you found it and
turned it back on, despite our best efforts to prevent you from doing so
by not providing a knob for this feature within the Zope ZMI. ;-)

You write a Zope Product that allows you to install an alternate
"acl_users" object (e.g. write something like ExUserFolder, UserDB, or
LDAPUserFolder that improves the domain auth mode feature).

This would only matter if you were going to write a Zope product.  The
basic user folder implementation of this feature is too slow.  You'd
need to create another implementation that is faster by operating
against a different arrangement of data in your code.

No, unfortunately.  The only way to do this is to write another user
folder or improve the current user folder domain auth implementation in
a backwards-compatible way.
