Chapter 27 of the Zope 3 book and the docstring for IPrincipal in Zope 3.2 both suggest Zope has the ability to provide a browser view of principal annotations. That would be a really great bit of functionality to have! Unfortunately, AFAICT, the system doesn't work at all in Zope 3.2. The Zope 3 book says you have to create an Authentication Service, but no such thing exists anymore.
Instead, I created Pluggable Authentication Utility and put a principal folder inside it. But principals created this way are InternalPrincipal objects which do not implement IPrincipal, so they don't have the extra view I registered. I could find no other way to visit a user object in the management interface. Therefore, views of IPrincipal are currently never used. Was this an accident? Did it work at one time? Are there plans to make principal annotation views work again? And how can I edit user annotations in the meanwhile?
