I don't think so. I would expect there's only one sane way to do it.

Did you read what I type? It's in BaseRequest.traverse(). Read the
source, I can't summarize 100 lines of python in one sentence.

The source of the other thread is that falling back to unauthorized
smells wrong, but I can see at least one case where changing this
might break existing apps.

Basically it monkeypatches RESPONSE.unauthorized() and
RESPONSE._unauthorized().

        if not req.get('disable_cookie_login__', 0):
            if attempt == ATTEMPT_LOGIN or attempt == ATTEMPT_NONE \
                   or attempt == ATTEMPT_RESUME:
                # Modify the "unauthorized" response.                           
   
                req._hold(ResponseCleanup(resp))
                resp.unauthorized = self.unauthorized
                resp._unauthorized = self._unauthorized
