 Usually I am not fond of magic either, but from an user point of
view ("user" = someone who might write ZODB Python scripts using PAS or
the like) I am used to have all changes to objects saved magically, so
why not user properties?


This is true - if this were a normal persistent object. But that is only true with a few user folder implementations, like the bog- standard Zope user folder.

For most user folder implementations the user object cannot counted as being persistent because it is assembled on the fly using data from external sources (RDBMS, LDAP, etc). It gets used once (or a few times if it bis cached internally for speeed) and then thrown away.

Basically, the expectation you mention is unrealistic for most user folders out there.
