Thanks for you answer. But perhaps I was not clear enough in describing what I
want to do.

I'm not looking for a way to assign a role to a user. I want to register the
user in one of the plugins (the same way the 'auto add user' property of the
"RemoteUserFolder" product worked).

Something like this:
- someone logs in for the first time
- some PAS plugins (extraction, authentication, ...) were executed
- one of these plugins calls portal_registration.addMember(userid,...)
- now the new user had a memberfolder and can change his own preferences

But it's not clear to me which kind of plugin I should use. I tried to put the
code in the authentiation plugin, but I can't do addMember in this plugin
because I'm in the process of being authenticated.
