Zope PAS doesn't do the authentication checks: it just tests if someone 
else did (it checks if the user has a "ticket").

The useraccount exists at the "Shibboleth identity provider" (say, at the
headquarters ;-) ). We (local department) don't have/want access to this
accountinfo. When someone is correctly authenticated at the identity provider,
Apache (that sits in front of Zope) gets some attributes from it, which it
passes to the web application by means of request variables. If such a variable
(with a username) exists in the request, we know that this person has passed the
authentication check at the identity provider.

So it is possible for someone to log in to Zope/Plone without going through the
Plone portal_registration steps. And I want to automatically do this
registration the first time someone logs in.
