This thread is using the word authenticate differently than most other 
Zope-related discussions.  Here, we are authenticating the *form*, not 
the user.  We need to be sure that submitted form data was produced by 
an authentic form.  Otherwise, a crafty site could cause the user's 
browser to invoke some action in the background.

BTW, the CSRF issue has existed as long as HTML forms have existed, but 
for some reason it has only drawn attention in the past year or two.
