Okay, I am answering this as good as I can, but I will not anymore, if the

I don't know which homefolder code you are referring to, but the one in 
zope.app.authentication was originally developed by myself, with many other 
contributors thereafter.

Where is this interface? I just searched the trunk for IPrincipalFolder and 
could not find it.

This seems very specific to Philipp's book; you might want to contact him

I think your setup is so specific that a general list like this will not be of
